Well Mr. Mafya, what is chance if am just making accusations or there is really something fishy? What is the chance of corrupt incompetent people to be found in such a place in Pakistan (what is its rank in corruption?) You are implying there is no corruption possible in Pakistan? You are implying Pakistanis made good plans for future? (hint: load shedding) Give me a break. Go and ask ICT RnD of how many things they supported that created jobs, improved society, increase GDP etc etc, which was their mandate.
My humble suggestion is that to stop this failed organization and operators should demand their money back because somehow this initiative had failed and money is most likely flowing into and is preyed on by different sharks. After dealing with this organization, I have come to conclusion that somehow Pakistanis cannot be trusted to run this kind of fund. I don't know an example in our history where Pakistanis have not made a mess of a good initiatives. Maybe someone else can guide me some good examples of merit based and corruption free successful organization in Pakistan because I am getting real pessimistic about ***** able to run a successful organization without corruption, incompetence and nepotism.
What ***** had done to cater for example for "EU's Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development"?
I posted this thing on defense forum because we need more defense from internal threats as well. If you give me your personal email, I can send you the proposal we took to them (which would be useful even to brain dead) but they used same tactics as described by poster before.
Ata-ur-Rehman sent hundreds of PHDs, where is the impact on society? The real problem in Pakistani society is lack of professional honesty in ALLLLL organizations (Defence organizations are likely exceptions), not necessarily the lack of education. Thomas Edison did not have degree but had professionalism and honesty to do right things and he changed the world. Thousands of PHDs present in Pakistan failed to do innovation and failed to help this country because of professional as well as intellectual dishonesty . These are PHDs who are involved in running these organizations. They may have passed their thesis but failed to passed honesty test. As a result they destroyed future of this country. This organization was very strategic as there is no other system for promoting innovation in Pakistan. These dishonest PHDs destroyed this organization and therefore need to be punished to inculcate professional honesty in other organizations.
It is better if operators get this money back and use this money to get 3G license in Pakistan so that our society move forward with positive effects of latest communication technologies. The bunch of people who are entrusted to run this fund will make a joke of it, wont progress themselves and wont let others to progress.
maifya what do you mean by chance? It is a stupid word to use here because we are not talking about casino and gambling here ...
