Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry claims PM Imran’s helicopter commute costs 50 rupees per kilometer

ISLAMABAD: In an interview to a local news channel, Information Minister Fawad Chaudhr made a startling revelation that Prime Minister Imran Khan’s helicopter commute costs between 50 to 55 rupees per kilometer.

This revelation was made in a heated exchange over Punjab’s chief minister’s usage of a private jet to travel with his family to Islamabad. The interviewer interjected shortly afterwards, casting light on this revelation. Chaudhry went on to elaborate on the right of the PM Imran to utilize all the perks offered to his office.

In an address to the members of the press, PPP’s Khurshid Shah said “Imran Khan uses a helicopter to travel from his residence in Bani Gala to the PM House, and he makes two trips every day. The total cost of it is Rs 300,000. He is all words but actions.”

He added that Khan was offering nothing new and the ruling PTI government was just presenting agendas of the previous governments with a minor ‘makeover’. “PTI will have to offer comprehensive changes.”

Talking about PPP’s candidate for presidency Aitzaz Ahsan, Khursheed said that the party had named an individual who was free from any accusations and who is an asset for the country.

He clarified that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) has no objections over Aitzaz’s candidature, but with the way things played out and that PPP understands reservations of its allies.
