Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Saturday demanded the provincial government of Punjab to make expenditure details of the Chief Minister Secretariat public.
In a letter to Principal Secretary to Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif, a senior PTI leader Andleeb Abbas asked on what grounds 66 percent increase was made in the expenditures of the CM Punjab Secretariat.
“We want to know under which law you’ve increased the budget of the CM Secretariat…is there any specific law which allows you to increase the budget, and on whose permission this was done?” she questioned.
She also demanded the provincial government to make the details of Rs 572.464 million expenditures by the CM Secretariat public. She added that the details of the huge money should be made available as the money belonged to the taxpayers of the country.
“We also want to know why personal residences of the chief minister have been turned into camp offices. The Constitution of Pakistan gives right to people of the country to know all these details, and the Punjab government must inform us about all these details,” she added.
Andleeb demanded that the huge sum of taxpayers’ money which was being spent on the camp offices of the chief minister, who claimed to be Khadim-e-Aaala (chief servant) of the people, should be approved by the provincial assembly.
