Pakistan Peoples party (PPP) senior leader Sherry Rehman on Tuesday said that Transparency International Corruption Perception Index (CPI) ranking is a charge-sheet against the incumbent government. Sherry Rehman, in a tweet, said that decline of Pakistan’s ranking by 16 positions in the report exposes the government’s narrative. The rulers who promised to end corruption in the country have in fact increased the ill-practice in country.
The PPP leader said that government’s accountability drive is only to target political opponents; however, the report has exposing the corruption of PTI, she added. It merits mention that Pakistan has slipped by 16 points on the international Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) and stands at 140th position in comparison to 124th position in 2020.—INP
