Imran Khan lashes out at Pakistan embassies, says take lessons from Indians

While expressing displeasure over the callous attitude of Pakistani embassies, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has lauded the role of Indian embassies and missions in bringing foreign direct investments to India from abroad.

Addressing Pakistan envoys virtually, Imran Khan said, “Indian embassies are more proactive in getting investments to their country as compared to Pakistan.”

He also said that “they render better services to its citizens”.

During his virtual meeting, Imran Khan displayed displeasure over an “indifferent attitude and unnecessary delays in routine services” by Pakistani embassies.

He also asked the envoys to work hard to bring FDI to Pakistan and it must be evaluated that which embassy facilitated how much FDI to Pakistan.

“Feedback that I have received from Saudi Arabia shows as if the staff is not working. The staff in Kuwait’s NADRA office take bribes instead of guiding people and an official is involved in making wrong documents. I was shocked to learn all this,” Khan said.

He said that Pakistanis living in the UAE and Saudi Arabia give the highest remittances and both embassies showed indifferent attitudes toward them.

“I called you today to tell you that you need to change your attitude… Shah Ji (Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi] you must oversee it or have someone to look into it… we have received floods of complaints that your response is dissatisfactory,” he said.

“Today if Pakistan is not on the verge of bankruptcy it is due to the remittances sent by overseas Pakistanis. they are our valuable asset,” he added.
