LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has said the PML-N government’s efforts for eliminating corruption are being appreciated at an international level as evident by the report published by renowned American journal ‘Foreign Policy’ regarding corruption and nepotism. Pakistan, he said, was performing better as compared to the neighbouring countries with regard to eradication of corruption, according to a handout issued on Sunday. Pakistan has been ranked 166th among 199 countries of the world on efforts being made for eradication of corruption. India is ranked 178th. Shahbaz said it was worth mentioning Pakistan was the only country in South Asia making successful efforts for eradication of corruption. “Verification of success of government efforts for elimination of corruption by a world renowned institution clearly shows the government’s attitude of zero tolerance against corruption from lower level to upper level was yielding better results,” he added.
