The CPEC project and its outcomes are viewed differently across Pakistan with the different genders and nature of stakeholders. Present study was devised to critically analyze the factors creating social ambivalence among people in Pakistan in context of CPEC in Pakistan along with current challenges and future perspectives. Therefore, all the respondents were the nationals of Pakistan. Results depicted that poor transparency in the program under CPEC has turned people against the projects. Additionally, people in the surrounding of the CPEC route exhibited fear pertaining to the migration of people to and far. People argued this may create chaos in the area and local people may be victimized to be ignored. Following the same footsteps, it was also observed that people have doubt in their minds that jobs are actually being created for the Chinese people. Therefore, it can be concluded that due to various factors, Pakistani community has become victim of social ambivalence and therefore, people need more guidance about the CPEC and to earn local support state should play its role and familiarize positive impacts of CPEC on the common man in the country.
