ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb said on Thursday that Imran Khan had made his position as the prime minister a business and earned Rs 142 million by retaining 58 state gifts from the Tosha Khana by paying a meager amount of 20 percent retention money.
Addressing a press conference in Islamabad on Thursday, she said that the performance of PTI is in front of the people.
Commenting on sudden rise in the income of former Prime Minister Imran Khan, Marriyum Aurangzeb said the former Prime Minister declared maximum of his income to the tune of Rs 141 million in whole of his life.
She said on the contrary, Imran Khan earned 142 million rupees by retaining 58 state gifts from the Tosha Khana by paying a meager amount of 20 percent retention money. She said Imran Khan retained these precious gifts on lower prices and sold them in the open market on four times higher rates.
The Minister said Imran Khan and his cronies are telling lies that gifts were retained on 50 percent prices, but in reality payments were made at the rate of 20 percent retention money.
Marriyum Aurangzeb said Imran Khan will have to provide the money trail of the amount spent on retaining state gifts from the Tosha Khana. She said how a person not having sufficient means of income to pay the retention money can buy precious gifts
