Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry said that PM Imran Khan’s helicopter usage expense is not much high.
Fawad Chaudhry revealed that Imran’s helicopter usage cost is Rs 50 to 55 per Km. He further added that it is a cheap helicopter if someone owns it personally and not kept it on rent.
Fawad Chaudhry said that it’s better to travel with helicopter instead of travelling in motorcade that creates problem for people. He further added that 4 helicopters are already present at PM House and were bought in previous governments.
The information minister said that the government has already cut down the Rs 550 millions expense as an austerity measure. He elaborated that the PM House staff is also reduced from 530 to 10 people.
Earlier this month, National Accountability Bureau (NAB) summoned Imran Khan in the helicopter misuse case. NAB officials revealed that Imran Khan misused Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government’s helicopters for 74 hours. They also said that it did the loss of Rs 2.1 million to the national fund.
