Mercedes for Governor Punjab?


Express May 05, 2010

LAHORE: Governor Punjab Salman Taseer sent a summary to the provincial government to release an amount of Rs25 million rupees to purchase a Mercedes Benz.

The summary was sent to the Chief Minister on November 9, 2009, but was rejected on the grounds that the province was suffering from financial problems.

In a shocking follow-up the summary has now been approved by the federal cabinet and the prime minister.

Additional chief secretary Sami Hameed and Finance Secretary Tariq Mehmood have further requested the chief minister to consider the request as a 'special case'. When contacted, the spokesman of the Governor House said that the current vehicle is not in a good condition which is why a demand fo the new car was made.

No funds have been released yet.

Muhammad Tariq | 10 years ago | Reply Why the government officials are using the public funds for their own security. All these actions taken by government are basically inviting for the public revolt. Unfortunately it will be a chain reaction by the public against all the politician if common man problems are not solved. Live simply and if you want to live lavishly spend it from his own pocket, the public funds are for the public's welfare. If the caliph were asked questions by the general public why can’t we ask to the servants of nation.
