ISLAMABAD – A recent survey of Transparency International shows that 92 percent of Pakistanis believe that inflation and price hikes are highest under Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government’s tenure as compared to previous regimes.

The National Corruption Perception Survey Pakistan 2021 displays breakdown of general public perception about the frequency and levels of corruption in the South Asian country.

Around 92.9% consider price hike to be the highest during the incumbent setup, compared to 4.6% who thought the same for the previous government of PML-N and 2.5% of the PPP government.

The survey reveals most people consider the PTI government’s self-accountability unsatisfactory. Around 52 percent opted weak accountability, 29 percent said the greed of powerful people, and the other 18 percent terms low salaries responsible for the corruption. Around 66.8% termed the PTI government’s accountability drive partial.

Some 85% of Pakistanis said their income levels have been squeezed during the Imran Khan-led government.
