Savi also asked the political party especially the ruling party or PDA not to deduct certain percentage of public fund in the name of ‘party fund’ or ministers/ advisor/ secretary ‘commission’ as no Government agency or minister or ruling political party has no right to deduct any fund meant for human resources and infrastructural developmental works.
