Imran Khan blames corruption for decline in FDI

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Friday claimed that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s overseas tours remained fruitless as Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in Pakistan plummeted to less than $1 billion last fiscal year.

In a message posted on social media, Khan said that PM’s tours cost Pakistan Rs65 crore but nothing has been achieved.

He blamed ‘corruption’ and investment by PM’s children outside Pakistan for the decline in FDI.

Comparing PM overseas tours with his Indian counterpart’s visits, Khan stated that Modi brought billions of dollars of investment into India.

Khan alleged that Sharif visits abroad only to expand his foreign business empire and settle financial issues in the wake of Panama leaks.
