Zulfi Bukhari to donate entire service salary into PM’s dam fund
ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister’s Special Assistant on Overseas Pakistanis and Human Resource Development Zulfi Bukhari has announced to donate all of the salaries of his complete service tenure into the PM-CJP dam fund.
“I will donate all salaries drawn while serving on this position to the PM-CJP Diamer-Bhasha and Mohmand Dams Fund,” Bukhari said.
On September 18, the cabinet division issued a notification, regarding his appointment as special assistant to the PM on overseas Pakistanis and human resource development.
Prime Minister Imran Khan on September 7 addressed the nation, appealing them –especially overseas Pakistanis – to help Pakistan avert looming water crisis and donate for construction of dams.
The fund has been established by the State Bank of Pakistan on the directions of the Supreme Court on July 6. All the commercial and micro-finance banks, and field offices of SBP Banking Services Corporation have opened the fund account to receive donations in cash, and through cheques, pay orders and demand drafts at all their branches across the country.
The donors can also make online donations to the Fund through internet banking, automatic teller machines (ATM) and other alternate delivery channels (ADC) using IBAN of their respective bank. The banks have sent the IBANs of the Fund account to their clients through SMS alerts, while the bank-wise list of IBANs is also available at the SBP’s web page.
