JOHOR BARU: The Public Accounts Committee (PAC) will look into the expenses of another four ministries soon.
It would start next week with the ministries of Federal Territories and Urban Wellbeing, PAC chairman Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed said.
This will be followed by the National Film Development Corporation Malaysia (Finas) under the Communications and Multimedia Ministry.
“Next month, the PAC will examine the Education Ministry again on expenses spent on school security as well as the police force on their asset management where we will focus on the loss of weapons issue,” he said during the Thaipusam celebrations at the Sri Subramaniam temple in Jalan Kolam Air here yesterday.
On a separate matter, the Pulai MP said he hoped that Malaysians would not get distracted by their differences but embrace them instead.
“Malaysia is a democratic and multicultural society. We should not cross the line of other people’s religion, and learn to show respect to each other,” he said.
He added that leaders should take time to visit the different places of worship, especially during festivals such as Thaipusam, so that they could observe for themselves the rituals and practices of other devotees.
