Great IK. How about creating jobs first by making policy changes? Renault is not coming to Pakistan, any thoughts on this?

Mate, PM need to setup a workshop paid by govt. That workshop or lab should be open to anyone with a good degree and some experience in mechanical engineering and stuff. We need to devise a battery that can be charged in under 2 minutes and which can go at least 500 miles on a single charge. Or better yet if there is load shedding, we can use magnetic coil charging or BRING THE GREAT TESLA wireless charging to life.

SUPER SUPER exciting times ahead. Seriously I love this PM.. At least he know how to move forward.. Imagine Electric super charger in place of petrol pumps. Super chargers are going to be amazing. But many other people will lose their jobs. Mechanics, engine tuning, oil and radiator. Everything will be gone..
