Imran Khan terror case

The details regarding the expenses of the Prime Minister’s Office from 2019 to 2021 were presented in the Senate on Tuesday. The Senate meeting was held under the chairmanship of Sadiq Sanjrani.

During the question hour, PPP Senator Bahramand Tangi said former prime minister Imran Khan talked about coming to office by a bicycle and preached simplicity but travelled by a helicopter. The senator said according to the data, Imran Khan spent Rs1 billion as the prime minister in the last three years.

Minister of State for Law Shahadat Awan said that during three years a budget of Rs1.17 billion was allocated for the Prime Minister’s Office while the expenses remained more than Rs900m.

In response to the allegations, Senator Shehzad Waseem asked for the details for flood funds and said how much and where those funds were allocated.

“They had to submit the details of the crowd that they had taken to the conference in Egypt. Where did the money go that was taken from the world conference, or they are having the intention to spend the money for their personal use?” he interrogated.

On Senator Shahzad Wasim’s question, Shahadat Awan said an irrelevant question had been asked. “If a written question is submitted according to the rules, I will provide all the details,” he said.
