Finance should work on his side to strengthen the economy instead paying attention on foreign remittances.
That is very good advice. They should not pay any attention to foreign remittances and work to strengthen the economy. I hope someone from finance ministry is reading your comment.

Is mein is government ka kia kamaal hai? It means that more people lost hope in this government and went abroad that is why the remittances increased. Agar remitance decrease hotey then we would conclude tht fewwer people are going abroad and in fact returning to Pakistan because this government has created the riasat e madina....
