Imran Khan to Auction 8 Buffaloes of PM House, Nawaz Kept for Gastronomic Needs

Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan has decided to auction eight buffaloes which were kept by former PM Nawaz Sharif in Pakistan PM House.

Pakistan government under Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has, as a part of its austerity drive, planned to auction eight buffaloes kept by former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif at the PM House for his ‘gastronomic requirements’.

PTI cited Naeem-ul-Haq, the Prime Minister’s Special Assistant for Political Affairs as saying that the government would auction over 80 luxury cars parked at the Prime Minister’s house along with four helicopters which have been lying unused.

“After the surplus car auction, 4 surplus helicopters will be sold which are lying unused with the cabinet division. Plus, now listen to this, 8 buffaloes which Nawaz kept at the PM house for his gastronomic requirements. So all potential buyers please get ready,” Naeem-ul-Haq tweeted on Tuesday.

On Monday, Khan suggested that government-owned land lying as ‘dead capital’ could be used to generate income instead of resorting to foreign aid to

shore up the country’s finances. The Prime Minister said that just the urban portion of the government-owned land was worth Rs 300 billion while Pakistan’s daily interest payment amounts to Rs 5 billion.
