PM Imran Khan decides to auction PM House cars


While making the first inaugural speech on Sunday 19th August, the newly elected Prime Minister Imran Khan announced to put the extravagantly lavish cars that are a part of PM House on auction, next month. The money generated from the auction will be used for public welfare.

Among many things stated by the PM while addressing to the nation, the auction of these highly expensive bulletproof cars was one of them. According to him, there are 80 vehicles for the use of Prime Minister and other senior ministers, out of which 33 are bulletproof and cost about 50 million rupees each.

Mentioning further, he said:

 “ We will put all the cars up for auction. However, I will have to keep two of the cars because of my intelligence agencies told me that my life is under threat. We will be auctioning off all the other bulletproof cars. I invite businesses to come and buy them. We will put the proceeds of that auction in the state treasury.”

  1. He has a real security threat and the local teen dubbas isnt going to cut it. We had no problem with 80 cars being used by the ex pm but suddenly want some one to create an example when he is already doing it and selling almost the entire fleet accept maybe 2?

  2. there is no point in that. we do not have a car company of Pakistan, so bulletproofing the car will still cause drain on dollar reserves. why not keep 2 of the ones we already have and sell the rest.

  3. When cars are made bullet proof - they gain a lot of weight and power to weight ratio is disturbed significantly. Local 1.8cc cars aren't powerful enough.

    Its a good step by our new PM. Lets appreciate it and move forward and hope things will get better.

  4. do you actually think civic or grande can handle the additional weight of bullet proofing and still be able to run in case they have to? and did you really just compare the quality of a locally produced toyota and honda to a merc? REALLY?

  5. IMHO IK should not auction them. They have costed alot and selling them at loss is not a sane decision since after sometime we might be needing them again.
    The war is not over and if IK starts doing good work,many will conspire against him.
    I say keep the mercedes but make sure we dont buy newer models after 5 or 10 years.
    These cars are also used by foreign visitors. Security need not to be compromised. Selling them is not wise.
