New Pakistan: Auction of PM House Luxury Cars Begins

ISLAMABAD — In a fulfillment of a promise made by Prime Minister Imran Khan, the auc­tion of more than 100 luxury vehicles is under way at the PM House.

According to reports, so far 10 cars have been sold out during the auction and some of them have fetched good prices.

Out of a total of 102, cars 7 luxury vehicles are bullet proof.

Earlier on September 1, the federal government decided to immediately put a fleet of government cars for auction following the pre­mier’s austerity policy.

Sources mentioned that the government collectively sent 33 vehicles out on auc­tion advertisement to reduce public expenditure from the government’s end.

The elite auction is car­rying eight luxury BMW cars and four recent models of Mercedes Benz vehicles in its ad including 16 Toyota Corolla, three Suzuki cars and one HTV vehicle.

The sources added that the remaining cars have been spared under control of the Cabinet for welcoming foreign guests. In the wake of Imran’s austerity drive, he is already facing criti­cism for using a helicopter for commuting from his Bani Gala residence to the Prime Minister’s Secretariat. On the other hand, PTI parlia­mentarian Ali Muhammad Khan said using one helicop­ter for three minutes ends up being cheaper than taking out five to seven vehicles that were required for PM’s road security.
