The spokesperson for Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) has strongly denied the media report attributed to Prime Minister Imran Khan.

According to the details, a private news channel had reported that PM Imran Khan had approved an increment in his own salary while chairing a federal cabinet meeting earlier this week.

Following the channel’s story  the PMO spokesperson said in a statement, “publication of such baseless and concocted report is highly regretted when the Prime Minister is running a campaign to reduce government’s expenditures in every possible manner and he also started it from his own personality.”

The spokesperson further stated amending the salaries and perks of the President and the Prime Minister at a recent cabinet meeting on the directive of the Prime Minister, it was decided that only one residence will henceforth be declared as camp office for President and Prime Minister.

Earlier Prime minister Imran Khan also faces criticisms on his grave remarks as the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and Jamaat-i-Islami have rebuked the PM Imran for his remarks in which the PM said people will get peace only in grave, implying that the government cannot solve their problems.

Before coming into power Imran Khan had given “lollypops” to the voters and now he was announcing without any remorse that the people would get peace only after death in their graves, said people’s party deputy information secretary Munawar Anjum.

Similarly, Jamaat-e-Islami emir Sirajul Haq said that the prime minister’s statement that a person could only get relief in grave actually reflected his helplessness.
