Imran Khan shows extreme disappointment regarding the decision of Punjab Assembly to increase pays and privilidges of its lawmakers. PTI is ruling Punjab after the controversial win in Elections 2018. Previously, Prime Minister Imran Khan has shown his full support to his Punjab CM Usman Buzdar naming him 'Wasim Akram Plus', despite all the criticism. Imran Khan took to Twitter to show his disappointment.
I am extremely disappointed by decision of Punjab Assembly to raise pays & privileges of MPAs, Ministers & esp CM. Once prosperity returns to Pak such a move cld be justified, but now, when we do not have resources to provide basic amenities to all our people, this is untenable— Imran Khan (@ImranKhanPTI) March 14, 2019
Following the pay raise, CM Punjab Usman Buzdar now withdraws Rs. 3,75,000 which is even more salary than the Prime Minister of Pakistan. Federal Information Minister Fawad Chaudhary also condemned the decision.
Seems Punjab Government and the CM House is in the dark about the PM and the federal Govt Austerity policies otherwise such sham exercise of awarding huge benefits to themselves would not have happened...— Ch Fawad Hussain (@fawadchaudhry) March 14, 2019
Prime Minister Imran Khan has been heavily criticized for appointing Usman Buzdar as CM Punjab althougth he had joined PTI just 15 days prior to the elections and also had murder cases against him.
