Stop using public money for first class air travel: Imran Khan
Almost all the democratic countries of this world have been experiencing since a century, the misuse of tax payers' money by the government officials for maintaining their lavish lifestyles? The prime ministers, presidents and even top govt officials don't bother misusing public money.

However, some leaders have tried to stop this practice by either banning or taking tough measures in this regard.

The new government of Pakistan has barred the government officials and leaders including the Prime Minister and President from first class air travel to prevent misuse of public money. 

According to Information Minister Fawad Chaudhary, this decision was taken in a Cabinet meeting chaired by Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday.

He said that the Cabinet has also banned the discretionary allocation of funds for the Prime Minister, President and other officials. Chaudhary claimed that former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s government used to spend 51 billion rupees in a year on business class air travel.

After winning the general elections, Khan had decided not to use the luxurious prime minister's house and instead use a small part of the house. Khan has also decided to take the services of only two govt vehicles and two servants.
