    PTI Austerity Thread

    Imran Khan to reside in PM House's staff colony after taking oath

    Last Updated On 11 August,2018 06:32 pm

    (Dunya News) – After taking all factors into consideration, the PM-designate Imran Khan on Saturday has finally arrived at the decision that he would reside in Military Secretary House located in Prime Minister Housing Colony, well-informed sources told Dunya News.

    This development came after law enforcement agencies (LEAs) warned leaders of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) that PM-in-waiting’s Bani Gala residence and Speaker House are perilous as both locations remain vulnerable to terror threats.

    Sources privy to LEAs further stated that both Khan’s Bani Gala residence and Speaker House don’t have complete boundary wall and sufficient numbers of check posts. The report warns miscreants can effortlessly target Imran Khan or any member of his family from both aforementioned locations.

    On the other hand, Babar Awan told media personnel that Imran Khan will retain National Assembly’s (NA) seat of Mianwali and would vacate four others NA-131 Lahore, NA-35 Bannu, NA-95 Mianwali and NA-243 Karachi.

    Governor House cannot be bulldozed: Imran Ismail

    KARACHI: PTI leader and Sindh Governor-to be Imran Ismail announced on Sunday that that he would stay in his own house after his appointment.

    “The Governor House will be used only for official purpose. I will not stay there,” Ismail told media persons in Karachi a day after PTI chairman Imran Khan named him as the next Governor of Sindh province.


    “We will cut the spending and see if the Governor House can be converted into a library or an educational institute,” he said.

    To a question, Ismail said that Governor House was a historic building which cannot be bulldozed.

    The PTI politician said that the opposition leader would be from his party which had emerged as the largest opposition group in the province.

    He said that PTI government would cooperate with Mayor of Karachi to execute development projects. “We will also try to seek the support of PPP to carry out development work in the metropolis,” he said.

    “The PTI government will lead on Imran Khan’s vision and bring about a real change,” he added.

    Was watching a recent interview of Pervez Musharraf.

    While he praised Imran Khan for his intentions to maintain maximum Austerity as possible, he advised him to not make sweeping decisions like converting the PM and President House into a University or Guest House just yet. He gave his own example that even though he was the leader of Pakistan from 1999 to 2007, he preferred to spend the vast majority of his time in the Army House at GHQ and only moved to the President House in 2008 full time. He said the biggest challenge is that when you have foreign dignatories and have to hold functions where you have to invite 200 plus people and the only place where you can host these dignatories is the PM or President House.

    As far as security is concerned, he mentioned that during his time he tried to maintain minimum protocol and had even instructed his driver and cars to stop at red lights but unfortunately after there were 2 assassination attempts on him as a result of the 2 red lights, his security team had to bypass red lights.

    Musharraf is right, and I absolutely maintain that Imran Khan should not make sweeping promises on austerity, only to u-turn because it's simply not possible.

    Yes, in countries like New Zealand for example, the PM roams freely like a regular citizen, however, Pakistan is far from being like New Zealand. Being PM of Pakistan is dangerous, Imran Khan's life will constantly be in danger. He requires some level of protocol, and I don't think it's a problem as long as life doesn't come to an absolute standstill whenever he goes out. If the protocol is well planned, then there will be minimal disruption to everyday life.

    Imran Khan will require a decent protocol, plans to try and take him out have most likely already been discussed up by various government bogie-men from around the world.

    All i want to see is more of Sheikh Rasheed riding on the back of a honda 125 smoking a cigar as he goes about his business.

    pm house should be kept but they can get rid of the presidants house, which is too big with his role being usless and then same with all governors houses.
