Cabinet rejects the demand of President to allocate budget for entertainment and gifts



ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan federal cabinet on Tuesday has rejected a demand of President Dr Arif Alvi who sought allocation of budget for "entertainment and gifts” and decided that he will be provided a special grant on a case to case basis. 

"President Alvi has to meet heads of states and under diplomatic norms he has to present gifts to the state guests on a reciprocal basis. However, the prime minister rejected the demand and said the president will get special funds on a case to case basis,” said Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Information Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan at a press conference after the cabinet meeting.

According to a Dawn report, the federal cabinet also decided to bring down prices of naan and roti to their previous rates throughout the country.

"Prime Minister Imran Khan has taken a stern notice of increasing prices of naan and roti and decided to take immediate steps to revert them to their original rates,” shed added.

She said besides the cabinet meeting the prime minister also presided over a meeting on gas tariff and rates of naan and roti. She said the prime minister also called a meeting of the Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) of the cabinet on Wednesday (today) aimed at reducing the gas tariff, especially for Tandoorwalas, and cutting the price of Atta (wheat flour) and duties on it.

At present naan is selling at Rs 12 to Rs 15 in different cities of the country. However, before an increase in the gas tariff and rates of wheat flour, naan price ranged between Rs8 and Rs10. Similarly, roti is available at Rs 10 to Rs 12 while its previous rate was Rs 7 to Rs 8.
