400 govt departments going to be closed down, don’t hope for govt jobs: Pakistan minister tells students

"It is imperative to tell people that the government cannot provide jobs. If we start looking towards the government for jobs, then the framework of our economy will collapse," said Chaudhary.

Fawad Chaudhary, the science and technology minister of Pakistan on Tuesday asked the youths of his country not to look for government jobs anymore, reports The News.

Addressing the second Deans International Conference of Engineering Institutions in Islamabad, Fawad Chaudhary said that the Imran Khan government could not provide jobs to the youths of the country. At the conference, the minister also disclosed that the government had decided to close down 400 government departments.

Chaudhry further said governments were shrinking in Pakistan or elsewhere in the world. “It is imperative to tell people that the government cannot provide jobs. If we start looking towards the government for jobs, then the framework of our economy will collapse.”

He further added that it was the mindset of the 1970s that governments would provide jobs but now the private sector has replaced the government in providing jobs. Chaudhry said it was not the government but the private sector that provided jobs adding that the government provided an environment in which new jobs were created. It is not necessary that everyone gets a government job, he added.

In the run-up to elections, the Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf had promised to provide 10 million jobs to the youth in its election manifesto.

A controversy broke out in Pakistan following Chaudhary’s announcement. Later, the minister took to Twitter to say he was amazed how a headline was made after taking his statement out of context.

He added, “I said that the private sector and not the government provides jobs. The government has to create an environment where jobs are available. It shouldn’t be the case that everyone is looking for a government job.”
