PM’s travel via helicopter costs around Rs 50-55 per km: Fawad Chaudhry
ISLAMABAD: Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry says Prime Minister Imran Khan’s travel via his helicopter costs between Rs 50 and Rs 55 per kilometer.
In his interview to a TV channel, the minister said PM Khan’s commute via helicopter doesn’t cost much and it’s around Rs 55 per km. He said helicopter isn’t much expensive if somebody owns it personally and not hired on rent.
He said it’s preferable to travel via helicopter instead of cavalcade on road that causes hardship to people. He underlined that four helicopters are already at the PM House from previous regimes, which is prerogative of any prime minister.
The information minister said the government has slashed Rs 550 millions under austerity measure.
He added that 530 people were working at the PM House whose number has now come down to below 10.
