Commenting on the international transparency report about the corruption, he said Indian media has been trying to malign the neighbouring country’s efforts taken for freedom of expression and eradicating corruption.
The Minister for Planning said people have great expectation from Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government and the leadership, who have come to power to eliminate corruption from the society. He said as per report of the national institutions, the corruption index has declined.
