Military pensions and startup costs of Istehkam-e-Pakistan Party not to be included in military budget

The federal budget has again continued the practice of slotting military pensions under the civilian budget. It has also included the costs associated with starting the Istehkam-e-Pakistan Party (IPP).

“Since military pensions go the retired officers and jawans and since technically they are civilians, it shouldn’t be an issue if they are not counted in the military budget,” said a source in the defence ministry.

“And the costs of the IPP have nothing to di with the military because the army is neutral and has nothing to do with politics,” he said.

The defence ministry source also offered your correspondent a fully paid trip to the northern areas where a training seminar is going to be conducted for journalists who fail to not see the connection between the military and the IPP.
