    “900,000 jobs over the next four years”

    I think Economist deliberately ignored the PML-N factor. We [including they all] know that it just can’t happen in “Sher Ki Party” time period.

    • Ali Raza

      Typical PTI detected.

      • ptcl

        And people like you are the typical Jiyalas.. I swear if I would beat you to the ground if I see you.

        • Ali Raza

          Do you need my address to beat me? ;) You will be beat me for not supporting PTI and you call yourself “Democratic” party. Dear Inquiliabis, Remember one thing, Pakistan can’t be changed by Revolution. It can only be changed by evolution. Let it evolve by elections and don’t try to develop the Marshal law environment . On the lighter note, Wese ap ka leader IK kitna bewaqof hai ap log phir b usai leader kehtai hain, Musharaf ko samajnai main ghalti hui us se, Ifthikhar Ch. ko samajnai main ghalti, Chief election commissioner main samajnai main ghalti, aur to aur Geo News ko samajnai main bhi. Wese mind na kerna aur marna na mujhe “Lanat hai aisai dumb leader pe”. Ask him to leave politics or join some academy. :-) and hey, I voted for PTI in 2013 elections and am still not a PML-N supporter but it doesn’t mean I will support IK or PTI blindly.

      Dont forget Sher ki Party has made this auction possible in minimum time and with transparency….

      • Shahid Saleem

        And boasted it would bring $2 Billion…

        Really,anyone who thinks anything can give us 900,000 in 4 years…you’re already ignorant about statistics. 9 LACS — where will you find that many qualified and competent people in this country?

        • Reader

          failed/rejected pmln’s cronies, got prison-ed for thr “quaid”, wandering ppl on footpath with Sher;s badge on the chest and so many more…

          • Shahid Saleem

            Ha ha! Well that takes of the “qualified” aspect but what about “competent”?

      • abobobilly

        Transparency ka malab pata hay aap ko? I mean “real meaning” and not just “dictionary meaning”?

        Rule of Transparency also states to disclose whatever “private profits” made or any “personal conflict of interest” to be made public. But it’d be most ironic to use the word Transparency for PMLN which gives all of its “family members” jobs at highest levels … “BECAUSE THEY CAN”.

        Do we need 3g? In this country people die of hunger, highways and roads are not in proper condition, most of all we dont meet the need of electricity. Tumharay sher ne konsa teer mara hai. Is se sasta auction zardari karwa raha tha 3g ka us se packages rates bho cheap hotay aur isi ganjay sher ne us ke khilaf court main appeal karkay stay le lia tha.

  • naseer

    Every thing has some drawbacks, you have only present one side of the picture, you haven’t show the other side of the picture which could be worst, because this is Pakistan man and I think so many people are not going to use 3g the way you are talking about.

    • S.T

      I totally agree with you. Actually no one is going to use it to ites fullest because we in Pakistan dont have those equipments. For traffic we need special equipments on roads to track traffic and show it on maps and for health agriculture so on.

  • Azi

    Amir bhai.. i heard that 3G can’t be provided in AJK region. restriction in license ? is it true.?

    • aamir7

      Yes, license for AJK will be issued separately.

      • Azi

        OMG…. you mean separate bidding for that..?

        • Dr. Aamir Liaquat Hussain

          Not separate bidding but a separate License. It depends whether they set a fee or not.

      • Guest

        AJK is an independent state which has its own president and prime minister. As far as I know Special Communication Organisation is responsible for AJK comission matters.

      • Muhammad Fawad

        AJK is an independent state having its own president and prime minister. As far as I know AJK is under SCO (Special Communication Organisation) which is responsible for all communication matters.

        • Dr. Aamir Liaquat Hussain

          SCO is not responsible to provide 3G or 4G from other companies. Its separate organization and allowed only to operate in that region.
          Soon companies will be issued separate licenses for AJK and GB.

          • Muhammad Fawad

            SCO is responsible for communication services in AJK. Thats why they are offering mobile services in AJK.

            • Dr. Aamir Liaquat Hussain

              Brother SCO is separate Identity, they are not responsible to provide Zong, Ufone,Telenor, Mobilink, Warid, PTCL or any other services we have in all other Pakistan.
              SCO has their own network in AJK and GB. They provide GSM, Telephony, Wireless, Broadband and many other services in the region.
              If you ask that SCOM which provides GSM, is going to launch 3G or 4G there than I guess No.
              It’s better if you visit their website.

    • S.T

      Yes its true. Pml n thinks kashmir is not part of Pakistan.

  • Mustafa

    I m on no ones side, PML or PTI, nor any other party. But this govt did get the auction through; no matter who set the foundation, it true business spirit, the govt gets the medal for that. Now the 900k jobs sounds hypothetical, but I am even happy with couple of 100K jobs. About resourcing this, it shouldn’t be an issue, there are hundreds of Universities in Pakistan and each puke out thousands every 6 months.
    what the govt is expected to do is build on the infra that have provisioned, and build this country.
    Any good thing for Pakistan is good for us. All parties do mostly bad stuff, but all do some good as well to survive.

    • Shahid Saleem

      I have interviewed some fresh graduates recently. In my experience (and in experience of my co-workers who also did interviewing), we have to reject 90% of them, at least 90%.

      And this is in a field where all people need are: 1. electricity, 2. computer, 3. internet, 4. understanding of the field (data structures, OOP things like that) 5. IMAGINATION.

      Their university gives them labs and time and space for 1-3 so that is taken care of. But they themselves are responsible for 4-5. Maybe 30% have 4. Fewer than 10% have 5.

      Really, you can churn out hundreds of excellent students with a CGPA of 3.5 out of 4 or higher but even out of those hundreds only a handful are the Great Ones that you want working for you or alongside you. Only they can be leaders.

  • Reader

    By doing such things, PML-N or PTI or whatever do not favor us… it is every citizen of the any country;s right that his govt do such things… problem is that our minds are now set to the lower level and can’t think beyond this… in a developed country very few bother to discuss such things… bcz they are developed… with a mature “leadership”

  • shujaswati

    900,000 jobs ? how come?

    Company will prefer to train there existing employees for future technology instead of hiring new ones. Else what will the old tech. guys will do?

  • aasim

    kya kahoo .. best answer is for current govt and for future govts . they need A OR more RINGMASTERS . werna yay sher .yay zardari . aur typical parties kha jayengi mulk aur awam ko .

  • S.T

    It needs 50 more years to implement all this in Pakistan.
    We dont actually need 3g and 4g in Pakistan, more than 70% of population doesnt has money to buy food to fill their stomachs. They hardly eat something to survive, will these people use 3g?
