Sajid Hussain Turi, the federal minister for overseas Pakistanis, asserted that government policies, rather than poor economic conditions, are to blame for Pakistanis’ emigration.
He claimed that 654,000 people had been moved abroad in the previous eight months.
The Minister also made the announcement that 27,000 Pakistanis living abroad would have their passports back. He also expressed his concern about the illegal expulsion of nationals, stating that it was putting the nation’s reputation into disrepute.
He continued by saying that he was dissatisfied with the measures taken to combat people traffickers and that, when the FIA did make an arrest, the suspects were often freed too soon.
He added that Pakistani human trafficking is being carried out by Afghan operatives.
The Ministry of Overseas Pakistanis has introduced a Digital Power of Attorney for Overseas Pakistanis in an effort to make things better.
In order to make travelling easier for overseas Pakistanis, dedicated counters are being created at all airports.
The Minister further emphasised that by forcibly throwing out more over 30,000 undocumented Pakistanis from Greek prisons, young time is being wasted.
The administration is negotiating arrangements with several nations to send the youth abroad lawfully in order to address this issue. The Minister disclosed that 16 MoUs, including ones with Australia and Japan, are nearing completion.
