The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf-led federal government’s austerity drive has helped save the national exchequer millions of rupees. The expenditures of the Prime Minister’s House and Prime Minister’s Office have significantly been cut, according to an official data. “Rs218 million were allocated in the last fiscal year to meet the operating expenses, however, only Rs46 million were used.”
First time in Pakistan, Prime Minister Imran Khan’s austerity drive has saved public money worth over Rs100 million during his recent trip to the USA. The PM’s decision to take commercial flights for the US trip and travelling through Qatar airways has set examples for many. The PM scrapped practices of former premiers of engaging at least two long-haul jets.
