“This is not a football or cricket match but the unemployed youth of our country who have come to Islamabad to give an interview for the police,” former Chief Minister of Balochistan Jam Kamal Khan said.

“This isn’t a cricket or football match, but jobless youth (in thousands) waiting for the Islamabad Police interview at sports complex Islamabad. A moment of shame for the Pakistani government,” journalist Rahim Nasar said.

“There is a state of unemployment in the country that all these people have gathered to get recruited for some posts of Islamabad Police. The poor condition of the country’s economy under the PDM government can be estimated from this picture,” journalist Iqrar ul Hassan Syed also said.
