Benefits for ex-PMs
THE prime minister is entitled to unimaginable perks once he leaves his office even if he has served the office for even a single minute.
At the cost of the taxpayers’ hard-earned money, the former prime ministers are entitled to a lifetime of perks, including car, fuel, air tickets, servants, telephone facilities, free electricity and water, personal staff and a sprawling bungalow with security in the heart of the country’s capital.
There is a need to change the law which provides these outrageous facilities to the former prime ministers, including caretaker premiers, and make it mandatory that the minimum period to be eligible for these perks should not be less than three years in office.
