Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhary Fawad Chaudhary states that there is no leniency for anyone with respect to Prime Minister Imran Khan’s accountability policy. He furthers his stance by saying that before the law, all citizens are equal.
On Tuesday, in a series of tweets, he stated that it does not matter that the allegations are against whom. Be it against the leaders of the opposition, a member of the cabinet, a bureaucrat or any officer of a department, investigation will take place fairly, as principle of accountability applies on everyone equally. The influential people are not above the law, and this is the very change that the system promised.
Fawad Chaudhary further stated that as far as the Ring Road project is concerned, it came to the Prime Minister Imran Khan's knowledge that an extension of twenty three kilometers took place in order to benefit the housing societies. In light of the aforementioned concern, the government purchased the additional land by paying twenty billion rupees.

The Information Minister further pronounced that as per the prefatory investigation of the Commissioner Rawalpindi, the former Commissioner and other officials were involved in the scandal.
He made it clear that no evidence, so far came in light, that could hint at the involvement of any minister or adviser in the scandal.
Chaudhary further suggested that when allegations surface, investigations are conducted. This phenomenon is only present in the government of Imran Khan.
This process of accountability for all was missing in the eras of PML (N) and the PPP, he concluded.
