    Funds, which are received from the China Government, are received with strict check and balance and monitored where the funds are being spent. Chinese funds are checked itself from the Government of China, so i do not see any misappropriations in the funds. No money is misappropriated which Pakistan receives on account of CPEC. So we should not create doubts in minds of masses without any proof. It is the reason CPEC is in completion stage in short period
