  • Why Government of Pakisan! only appoint old folks for IT ministry level.

    We have tons of great personalities in IT along great leadership! Why IT core professionals not considered fit for Ministry!

  • Doesn’t matter he is good or not but he is too old. I wonder if he even knows how to use computer.

  • Totally agree we should apoint relevant people like Musharraf had Razzak Dawood for Trade ministry, Dr. Ata ur Rehman for IT, Shoukat Aziz for Finance.

    Only relevant people shoudl take on the jobs. We need a visionary IT minster who can take Pakistan to next level to compete with India, BD, China, Singapore etc.
