PTI hires lobbying firm for good relations with US and Pakistani diaspora
Islamabad: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has hired a lobbying firm in Washington DC at a cost of $25,000 per month, according to documents unearthed by Uzair Younus, Director of the Pakistan Initiative at the South Asia Center.
In the documents filed on August 9, the PTI has engaged Fenton/Arlock LLC to support PTI’s “goals for good relations with the United States and the Pakistani diaspora in the US.”
Younus said that Fenton/Arlock was also hired by the Pakistan Embassy in the US in March 2022 for $30,000 a month.
He also shared the link to where the documents are publicly available on a US website.
When he was confronted by PTI supporters that the agreement involves the PTI USA and not the PTI Pakistan, he shared a screenshot of the document to corroborate his claim that the firm would support the goal of the PTI Pakistan for good relations with the United States and the Pakistani diaspora in the US.
