The Prime Minister’s House is available for renting now as the government has decided to make the official residence a permanent source of income instead of a university.
On Aug 19, 2018, Prime Minister Imran Khan had said, “I think we should convert it (the 1100 canals building) into a high standard university, which will conduct research and invite the world’s greatest scholars here.”
However, now the PTI government has taken a U-turn from Imran Khan’s announcement and decided to rent out the PM’s House to make it a source of permanent income.
The Prime Minister’s House will no longer be available for study purpose rather it will host fashion and culture events.
According to the proposal included in the agenda of the federal cabinet, local and international food, fashion, cultural events and vintage vehicles will be displayed in the House.
High level diplomatic functions and seminars will also be held at there. Two committees have also been constituted for the commercial use of the Prime Minister’s House which will be responsible for maintaining security and discipline.
The government had earlier raised money in the exchequer by selling valuable vehicles and buffaloes raised at the Prime Minister’s House.
