Khan staying out of PM house will save money worth Rs1 85b

Agency News

Islamabad, Sep 15: Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan’s decision to live in a smaller, simpler residence and not in the official Prime Minister’s House will save the exorbitant amount of Pakistani Rs1.

85 billion spent annually on the PM House. It will also send a positive message to the masses that their prime minister is not wasting public money on a life of luxuries and protocol, the Gulf News reported.

Imran Khan has, in a number of interviews and press conferences, made it clear that he will neither stay in the PM House nor enjoy VVIP protocol after assuming office.

The cricketer-turned politician has also vowed to ensure that his ministers and provincial chief ministers, where his party is in power, also follow principles of austerity. (UNI)
