Why is Gujarat hush-hush on CAG queries?

Even as Chief Minister Narendra Modi often goes hammer and tongs slamming the Centre for alleged corruptions, Gujarat however chose to remain silent on observations made on it by the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG).

The state has failed to respond to more than 5,000 queries and 15,100 audit observations involving Rs 9,000 crore made by CAG, a Times of India report said.

"In the last three years, the number of unreplied queries has increased substantially," a senior official at the office of Principal Accountant General (PAG), Ahmedabad was quoted as saying by the Times of India.

Gujarat goes to polls on 13 and 17 December. The results will be announced on 20 December.
