In 2011-12 and 2012-13, the budget of the PM office was increased at whopping rate of 56 and 58 per cent respectively.

While the incumbent Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz government following the austerity measures announced the budget of Prime Minister’s office Rs779,355,000 for the fiscal year 2014-15, which is just 3.26 per more higher than last year's estimated figure of Rs 754,614,000 for the year 2013-14, the review of last five years expenditure of the PM Office reveals shocking facts.



In the fiscal year 2010-11, the increase in the PM office expenditure was 8.25 per cent, which was almost 5 per cent lower than the rate of inflation, which stood at 13.7 per cent that year.



Interestingly, in 2011-12 and 2012-13, the government had increased the budget of the PM office at the whopping rate of 56 and 58 per cent respectively.

These are the PM's of poor country. The original expenditures are higher than this budget. Nawaz sharif has spended 26 crore rupees on foreign tours. There are different techniques to make corruption and this is one of them and PM is not answerable about this.

No matter what is the relationship between expenditures of current and previous years. It is obvious that Supreme Leader (or what they call Khadim-e-Aala) of a country like Pakistan can not afford to have such luxuries of a nine digits budget for this purpose …. Shameful !
