The chair of the Fiji Public Accounts Committee says criticism of his chairmanship by FijiFirst MPs is frivolous.
The first meeting of the Committee was due to be held this morning, but it has been deferred after government MPs complained about Dr Biman Prasad holding the post.
Dr Prasad, who heads the opposition National Federation Party, says the government MPs are unhappy at comments he has been making concerning the series of recently released auditor general's reports.
He says he rejects the government MPs' claims that his comments on the reports are unjustified.
Dr Prasad says the reports are public property and already in the public domain.
"And the media has been picking up issues from those reports, highlighting what the auditor general has specifically stated. My comments only relate to the processes and how the Public Accounts Committee was all set up and geared towards scrutinising those reports and the plans that we had."
