Prime Minister Imran Khan is making good on his promises of austerity and protecting taxpayers’ money ever since coming into power in 2018.
The premier’s international visits have garnered plenty of praise owing to the fact that his predecessors had spent lavishly, enjoying the high-profile visits with their families and huge delegations.
|Prime Minister||Year||Expenditure ($)|
|Yousaf Raza Gillani (PPPP)||2012||459,451|
|Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif (PML-N||2017||762,199|
|Shahid Khaqan Abbasi (PML-N)||2018||561,381|
|Imran Khan (PTI)||2020||68,000|
In its statement, PID further said that PM Khan has directed the concerned people to further cut down the expenses on his foreign tours.
The 67-year-old leader’s previous trip to Washington cost only $68,000 to the national exchequer as compared to Nawaz Sharif’s $549,854 and Asif Ali Zardari’s $752,682.
