Fawad Hussain Chaudhry—the Federal Minister for Science and Technology on Tuesday made a very controversial statement. He said that the people of Pakistan should not look towards the government for the jobs.
While addressing the second Deans International Conference of Engineering Institutions in Islamabad, Fawad Chaudhry said that the government couldn’t provide jobs to the public.
“Instead, I want to tell you that the government is Pakistan has also plan to disband 400 departments,” the minister added. He further said that in Pakistan or elsewhere in the world, the governments are shrinking.
Mr Chaudhry further said that it is very important to get the people to realize that the government cannot provide jobs. “If we start looking towards the government for the jobs then the framework of our economy will be collapsed,” he said.
It was the mentality of the 1970s when people thought that the government would provide jobs, now the private sector provides jobs to the people.
On the other hand, the minister posted a tweet and clarified that the government intends to create an environment for the new jobs, adding that it wasn’t necessary for everyone to get a government job.
