Shaoib Baig, Former Vice President of Telenor, Joins PTI

Muhammad Shoaib Baig

Muhammad Shoaib Baig, who recently stepped down from his position from Telenor, has officially announced to join Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.

“I am joining PTI on the call of my leader Imran Khan to stand up for our rights and say NO to injustice forever – inshAllah together we will make Naya Pakistan!”, Shaoib was quoted as saying in an update posted by PTI’s official Facebook page.

Shoaib remained Chief HR Officer and Vice President of Telenor Pakistan from February 2011 to August 2014.

Shaoib Baig opted politics instead of carrying forward the conventional career to become the first executive from Telecom industry of Pakistan to officially peruse politics as a career.

Shaoib brings along an extensive human management and development skills from top regional and global corporations like Telenor Pakistan, Unilever and British American Tobacco.

Not to be mentioned, Asad Umar, former CEO and President of Engro, joined Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf in 2012 to set the precedent for professionals and business administrators to become part of country’s political ecosystem.

Reportedly, Asad Umar is meeting professionals from different sectors to join PTI and it is likely that more executives may join PTI in coming weeks.

Along with other positive outcomes, Shoaib’s involvement in politics will help the government understand telecomm sector a lot better than it does now.

We have seen a notable disconnect between government circles and new technologies that not only hurts the industry but it also dent’s our national economy with a sizeable negative impact. With working professionals joining politics, we can expect this situation to change positively.

      Dear Aamir,

      I believe this website is your bread and butter. I
      know you personally and met you on Saidpur Rd in Rwp. My humble advice
      will be that you keep this website a technology website and not a
      political forum. You are a member of PTI and can ask people not to come
      to this website if they don’t want to read this content by
      professionalism is that if you keep technology for a technology
      forum/blog and politics for a political blog. I am a regular visitor of
      your blog but I am losing interest as I don’t see “technology” anymore
      but politics directly or indirectly. I voted for PTI in last election
      but that doesn’t mean politics should be part of our all time discussion
      because as a nation we don’t have patience to accept different
      thoughts. We should discuss politics at the right time, right place and
      in right amount of time.

        Dear Aamir,

        I suggest the same, keeping a political angle on this website may not be a wise move.

  • KMQ

    “Asad Umar, former CEO and President of Engro” – really? if thats so did he just stepped down to join PTI and bring change. If thats true then hats off to him. This is what you call ‘INQILAAB’

    • kokab

      Bro, are u living in Pakistan or what? U don’t even know THE BEST CEO of the Pakistan till date. He has given Engro foods millions n millions Rs profit when he was CEO in engro. He left Rs 5700000 Salary behind to join PTI. LOVE PTI <3 <3 <3

      • KMQ

        Brother, I live in Pakistan but was not aware of this. But great to know and thanks for more info he left 5.7 million salary, simply speech less..

      • ogkg

        You made claims that even Asad Umar does not agree with. Shah sy zyada shah k wafadar? btw, lets not make him stand among the ranks of people like Mr. Baig, Hashmi etc. Asad willingly and consciously left an exemplary career to join PTI. There is, and will never be, any more such examples.

        • kokab

          Agree!!

      • Pol Priy

        Quite the brown noser aren’t you?

  • Ashar khan

    • kokab

      Cool down dude, dont u dare to say anything to PTI !!

  • ogkg

    Guy with that kind of reputation can only switch career to let things cool down. Read the thread which reported his ‘resignation’. Btw, this development has nothing to do with technology.
    If PTI continues to accept waste and scrap, it will only become a huge pile of trash. They invited eek bahadur aadmin when he left his original party because of personal vendetta, and not due to his famed ‘principals’.

    • Old Employee

      We should speak only if we our speech will be good and beneficial. We should remember the famous saying, “If you do not have anything good to say, don’t say anything at all.” Imams Bukhari and Muslim reported that the prophet (S.A.W.) said,“Whosoever believes in Allah and the Last Day, let him say good or remain silent.”

      • ogkg

        Well dear. Alhumdulilllah, I am not a disgruntled Telenor employee. In fact, I am not even remotely associated to the hyped-up but miniature telecom sector. However, I am sure you have read comments and revelations in the blogpost which announced that he ‘resigned’. Apparently, he was doing all sorts of things when he had power. Employees of all genders stayed silent.
        PTI continued to accept lotas and turncoats. Most of the voters stayed silent. Thats why the “haan mein baghi hun” dared to spin up a cool story which suited all but the people. Time has certainly revealed who planted him and why.
        I will let go of the sad fact that you quoted a hadith in an absolutely wrong context. You need to revisit your own thoughts. I dont want to quote a trove of ahadith to prove that those who stay silent in case of injustice are equally responsible in the crime.

  • Guest

    wow – with such exceptionally qualified people having achieved so much in life and then give it all up for their country – that’s the resolve. Asad Umar’s efforts of bringing in technocrats in PTI is bearing fruit..In my humble opinion that’s the only way Pakistan can prosper and with it the rest of us. Hats off to Shoaib..wish we all had that courage

  • Amir

    We need these type of people who are dedicated to work for their country and not the money looting frauds!

  • shoaib

    Probably he found politics more lucrative then conventicle career just like Shaukat Aziz. we all know how Mr. SA ruin this country and went back to enjoy rest of his life. “Say No” to these “Executive Jugglers” .

  • Dani

    It is a real change in Pakistan politics that these kind of educated and well professional people are going to play vital role in our politics.

    P.S “Shukar hai ke jahil, waderay or khandani politics ka khatma hona shuru ho gya Pakistan me, Imran Khan you are changing Pakistan”

    SALUTE TO YOU…SIR !!!

  • FR

    Shoaib Baig is a decent man with honor. Comparing him with Nayab is unfair as both are highly professional with different personalities and way of work. Though he has moved on but he will always be remembered for his countless contributions and down to earth personality.
