Govt Rejects TI Report On Corruption

ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting, Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan has emphatically rejected as biased the Transparency International’s report regarding corruption in Pakistan.

Talking to the media persons at Parliament House in Islamabad on Friday, she said the report is not fair and transparent. She said it has also been rejected by the masses since it apparently has been managed by the corruption kings sitting abroad.

The Special Assistant recalled that Pakistan chapter of Transparency International was given favours by the previous government of PML (N).

Firdous Ashiq Awan said giving clean chits to those whose corruption cases are pending before the court clearly indicates the nexus between these elements and Pakistan chapter of Transparency International. She said the report itself raises question on the transparency and credibility of the institution.

The Special Assistant said PTI government is committed to free the country of corruption and all the corrupt practices.

She said Prime Minister Imran Khan has never compromised in the fight against corruption and never will he do so in future.
