Controversially acclaimed Federal Minister for Water Resources Faisal Vawda has made a startling claim that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf-led government will create “so many jobs, organizations will run out of people to employ”. His comments have stirred a social media debate, most of which is comprised of bashful comments against the Minister.
While appearing at Senior Anchorperson Hamid Mir’s talk show on Geo News, Vawda continued “whether you talk about the stock exchange, property, industry or even the media, where people are being fired with the onus placed on the government, there will be many jobs and I am urging the owners not to fire people.”
He also said, “We have to put up with the inflation and poor economy because we have no choice. It was passed on to us from the previous governments. We have to take loans to pay off interest left behind for us. But we can offer an incentive to make it easier for the public to bear the inflation.”
The Karachi based Water and Power Minister also came under fire for appearing on the scene of the terror attack on the Chinese embassy in Karachi last year, armed with a pistol and with a life vest strapped.
“We will fix the dearth of jobs that the public was also facing along with the inflation. There will be so many jobs and the situation will become so much better,” he said.
“These incentives will materialize soon and I am not talking in terms of years, I am talking in terms of a week, ten days or maybe two to four weeks. Things will change in a very short time and I repeat businesses should stop firing people,” the minister claimed with assertiveness.
After the Pakistan Air Force downed two Indian jets, Faisal Vawda had visited the LOC and had himself photographed on the rubble of the Indian plane. His stunt wasn’t taken well in the party leadership and PM Khan reportedly had personally reprimanded the minister, asking him as to why he was there at all.

The Karachi based Water and Power Minister also came under fire for appearing on the scene of the terror attack on the Chinese embassy in Karachi last year, armed with a pistol and with a life vest strapped. That gimmick had earned him a lot of hate on social media and sparked a debate on whether the Water and Power Minister needed to be there in the first place.
