Free Laptops for Punjab Youth

upto 100K students of Punjab will be getting free Laptops at the expense of the government. i wonder do we all need Laptops? or should the amount be invested on some other educational gimmick?

although, getting a Laptop is one of the dreams of every student i believe, but life remains almost the same after getting this gadget.

moreover, what would be the specs of this machine?

Ba$t!@#$ wasting my tax money and that from others on non-productive schemes. :angry:

benazir incom support, sasta roty , peeli taxi , free laptops etc these are actually ways of making money , corruption

I am not sure if our education standards requires our students to have laptops. I could be wrong but we still have 9 planets in our solar system and the earth is still round in our study courses. :lol:

But even if we consider it a 'good idea'... what about the rest of provinces? Their youth is not good enough for free laptops? I don't mean to flame or anything, but this is coming from a guy in Punjab. *me

What's your actual take for this?

I think its because of the popularity of Imran khan in youth and punjab gov is trying to suppress that.

Give me one. Where should I come to take my piece, Government. B)

^ Nobody said it being a charity event. :lol:

I know what its about ,

my sources tell me its about VOTES... nothing else...

those who are over 18 and have votes made will be preferred. =)

^^ Damn True.

Instead of wasting money on laptops,it would have been much better if Punjab Government sets up some export oriented industry and employ people. That would have been a long term benifit for those who get opporunity there.

What a stupid step. Millions of rs would be wasted ...They are trying to get attention of the youth who is strongly following PTI. Pretty bad move. People will blame even softwares on Punjab Government now

why not use the same money to fix ghost schools.......

To all who gave their best opinion above? Just leave it, it's useless to cry, they'll never come and read this forum or listen you/me. So we should not waste our time as they are wasting our money already....

Very right, even if they read the forum they are not going to to do something better.

BTW: I believe they already knew the better options

At least Punjab Government is better than Federal as they are giving something not taking everything, I wish i could get one, but i am not a student any more. :(

About the fact that this move will get them votes let me remind you my friends this is our culture. When elections are near every party introduces these kind of marketing gimmicks :P

Well my name is the on the list. Lets see what happens :D

Dear CM also unblock porn in Punjab. :P

And moreover also provide us a good quality webcam with unlimited free wireless broadband.

And and and one more thing: A Dating Center in every Tehsil of Punjab. :P.

What are the specs of the laptops? Are they those dummy ones which UN gives out for free in Africa?

Nice program
