Sindh government to buy hundreds of luxury cars for assistant and deputy commissioners

The Sindh provincial government has decided to purchase a fleet of high-end vehicles for hundreds of its officials even as poverty and unemployment prevails across the province.

According to information, the Sindh government is planning to use the funds of the current financial year to purchase a fleet of vehicles for its officials.

This includes 1300 cc Toyota Yaris cars worth Rs 4.9 million (per car) for assistant commissioners in urban areas. Apart from this, Toyota Hilux 4×4 Double Cabin Standard Edition worth Rs 10 million (per car) will be purchased for officers working in rural areas.

Besides, more expensive vehicles will be provided to deputy commissioners of 31 districts and 150 subdivisions of the province. Replying to a question about the purchase of these vehicles, Provincial Development and Planning Minister Syed Nasir Hussain Shah said it was a necessary expenditure.

He said that “funds have already been allocated for this in the current fiscal year’s budget.” Nasir Shah said that “cars are needed for official work and the government is not wasting money on luxury.”
