Government Can’t Provide Jobs: Fawad Chaudhry

Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry has asked the public not to look towards the government for jobs.

Addressing the second Deans’ International Conference of Engineering Institutions in Islamabad, the minister said that the government cannot provide jobs to the public. “Instead, I want to tell you that the government is going to disband 400 departments,” he added.

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) member further said, “In Pakistan or elsewhere in the world, governments are shrinking.”

“It is imperative to make people realize that the government cannot provide jobs. If we start looking towards the government for jobs then the framework of our economy will collapse. It was the mentality of the 1970s that governments would provide jobs — now the private sector provides jobs,” he added.

It is pertinent to mention here that the PTI government had claimed to provide 10 million jobs to youth in its election manifesto.

Meanwhile, Fawad Chaudhry has clarified in a tweet that the government intends to create a conducive environment for new jobs, adding that it is not necessary that everyone gets a government job.



  • providing government jobs is not responsibility of any government directly. Their job is to provide good and beneficial environment to private sector which will give jobs to public

  • He is very realistic. Govt can indeed not provide jobs to all. If it does then it will be at the cost of heavy borrowing and destroying the economy. Govt should facilitate the economy. Private Jobs are a bye product of a good economy. Government jobs are a recipe for muft khori and bleeding the exchequer through corruption which all government employees indulge in according to the opportunities given to them.
