Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Governor Ghulam Ali is being slammed for using a state helicopter along with his family and friends from the trader community during a recent visit to Swat, as per a report from Geo News.

A video of the Governor with his grandsons and acquaintances boarding the chopper went viral on social media.

In the past, the Governor had not signed a bill for blocking unnecessary usage of the state helicopter.


It is not the first time that this has happened. During the governor’s visit to Bajaur in August , he was seen travelling with minor children, reported to be his grandsons.

It should also be mentioned that the Governor had a disagreement with the former chief minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Mahmood Khan, over the unnecessary use of the state helicopter.

The previous government of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), faced significant backlash for utilising state helicopters on what were perceived as unnecessary trips. Former Prime Minister Imran Khan received widespread criticism when he claimed that helicopter outings incurred minimal expenses.
