ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry on Tuesday said that it was difficult to talk about science in Pakistan.
While talking to the media on Tuesday in Islamabad, the federal minister said, “It is difficult to talk about science in Pakistan.”
He said that even in 2019, the minister of science has to tell people that there is no need to use binoculars to look at the moon.
Fawad Chaudhry said, “Developed countries are lucky because they don’t have to deal with people like Fazalur Rehman and Khadim Hussain Rizvi.”
Fawad Chaudhry further said, “We have to face them every Friday.”
The federal minister said that Pakistan would soon be opting towards mobile payment for all transactions.
The federal minister said, “Smartphones are the future of identity verification.”
Chaudhry said that the condition of submitting CNIC for purchases would be removed.
According to a recent announcement by the Federal Investigation Agency (FBR), shoppers will have to provide a copy of their CNIC for purchases exceeding Rs50,000.
The FBR introduced the condition for business-to-business transactions to avoid fake transactions.
