*ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday expressed deep disappointment over the decision of Punjab Assembly which had passed a bill increasing salaries and privileges to the provincial lawmakers including chief minister.*
In his latest Twitter message, PM Khan said, he was ‘extremely disappointed by the decision of Punjab Assembly’ regarding raise in salaries and privileges of the Members of Provincial Assembly (MPAs), other minister and especially the chief minister.
Continuing his sharp criticism indiscriminately against the provincial lawmakers, he termed the development as ‘ untenable’ move by legislators amid the deteriorated economic situation ‘ when we do not have resources to provide basic amenities to all our people’.
He added that the increase in perks and pays could only be justified when prosperity returns to the country.
I am extremely disappointed by decision of Punjab Assembly to raise pays & privileges of MPAs, Ministers & esp CM. Once prosperity returns to Pak such a move cld be justified, but now, when we do not have resources to provide basic amenities to all our people, this is untenable. Twitter Ads info and privacy link
