PM to bear expenditure of his visit to Saudi Arabia: Marriyum

Minister for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb has clarified that Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif will bear the expenditure of his upcoming visit to Saudi Arabia instead of burdening the national exchequer.

In a series of tweets on Monday, she said that the Prime Minister is going to Saudi Arabia on a commercial flight. Referring to PTI leader Chaudhry Fawad Hussain's tweet, Marriyum Aurangzeb said the former Minister should know that neither Shehbaz Sharif is carrying a chartered plane nor any journalist will go with him on government expenditure.

She said Imran Khan and his cronies were known for banning channels and programmes during their days in power. She said now, after their expulsion from power, they have unleashed baseless allegations.
