Pak PM austerity drive: Merely 2 cars auctioned out of 18

Islamabad: Efforts by Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan to auction off 18 cars belonging to the Prime Minister’s house bore little fruit, as only two cars were sold on Thursday.

As part of his austerity drive, two vehicles were sold – one 1986 model at PKR 1,75,000 and a 2016 4×4 model at PKR 18,10,000.

Another auction will be held on November 6 to sell 20 bulletproof vehicles that found no takers in Thursday’s round, according to Geo News.

Previously, buffaloes that were bought for preceding Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, were auctioned off during the drive, which is a part of Khan’s vision to cut government expenditure.
