Punjab Minister for irrigation Sardar Mohsin Khan Leghari on Tuesday said Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) would continue its efforts for a corruption-free Pakistan and was taking innovative measures to divert the flow of resources towards well being of poor people.

Talking to APP, he said the corruption had been damaging the whole system since long and no meaningful effort was made in past to hold the corrupt elites accountable. Laghari stated that corruption widened the gap between the poor and the rich.

He added that Prime Minister Imran Khan founded Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf on April 25,1996 to free the country from menace of corruption.

The minister said corrupt elements then were busy in looting national resources and were making their properties in foreign states. He said that PTI government was making efforts to bring the looted national wealth back to the country.—APP
