Imran Khan-led Pakistan government has decided to auction 8 buffaloes which have been kept by former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif at the PM House. According to reports, the buffaloes were kept by Nawaz Sharif for his gastronomic requirements. Nawaz Sharif is currently serving his 10-year jail term after he was convicted in a corruption case. Nawaz Sharif has served as Pakistan PM for three terms.
Further speaking on the move to auction 8 buffaloes kept by former Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif, a close aide of PM Imran Khan has said that the government as part of its austerity drive will also auction 80 luxury cars parked at the Prime Ministers’ House. In addition to this, the Imran Khan government will also auction surplus helicopters which are no more in use and are lying with the cabinet division.
The government has alerted the people in Pakistan and elsewhere to be prepared for such an auction. According to reports, first the 80 luxury cars will be auctioned and once that task is settled, surplus helicopters and Nawaz Sharif’s buffaloes will be auctioned.
The Imran Khan government has also conveyed that the dead land which is lying in the country should also be used to generate employment instead of resorting to foreign aid.
