CPI 2022 Report indictment of PTI’s poor record on corruption, Sherry

Islamabad : Federal Minister for Climate Change, Senator Sherry Rehman said that Transparency International’s Corruption Perception Index Report 2022 is a damning indictment of the PTI government’s record on corruption.

“The corruption narrative of Imran Khan and the PTI was only limited to speeches and publicity,” said Rehman. “Despite four years in power, corruption did not decrease, but continued to increase under their watch.”

Minister Rehman highlighted the significant rise in Pakistan’s ranking in the Corruption Perception Index, from 117th to 140th, happened under the PTI government’s rule. “The rise in corruption, 23 places in the index, is a result of the worst tenure of the Tehreek-e-Insaaf government,” she added.

“While Khan himself is involved in mega-corruption scandals, his government was busy in creating false cases against his political opponents,” Rehman stated. “Despite this, Khan claims that no corruption scandal has surfaced during his tenure. The corruption watchdog said that Khan came to power with the promise of tackling corruption, but he accomplished nothing during his 4-year tenure.
