ISLAMABAD: The spokesperson for Prime Minister’s Office has denied the media report about increase in salary of Prime Minister Imran Khan.
In a statement, the spokesperson said publication of such baseless and concocted report is highly regretted when the prime minister is running a campaign to reduce government’s expenditures in every possible manner and he also started it from his own personality.
The spokesperson said amending the salaries and perks of the president and the prime minister at a recent cabinet meeting on the directive of the prime minister, it was decided that only one residence will henceforth be declared as camp office for president and prime minister.
Prime Minister Imran Khan only makes Rs 200,000 a month, out of which Rs 150,000 is his basic salary and Rs 50,000 is his house allowance.
Nonetheless, Imran Khan lives in his private house at Bani Gala. He has not declared it to be a camp office and so he charges himself for the house’s spending.
As per reports, PM Khan pays the utilities bills and the employee’s wages from his own pocket.
