Ter­mi­na­tion of po­lice of­fi­cials

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - IRTAZA SIDDIQUE

KP govern­ment has taken the de­ci­sion to ter­mi­nate around 12,500 po­lice of­fi­cials who in­clude 10,000 re­serve po­lice and 2,500 ex- ser­vice­men and this de­ci­sion will come in ef­fect by the 30th June 2016. This is stag­ger­ing and ir­ra­tional. As this de­ci­sion doesn’t own any ra­tio­nal­ity, it re­ceived con­cerns of IG KP, Nasir Khan Dur­rani.

He said that we are al­ready in the state of war and the se­cu­rity of­fi­cials are al­ready less in num­bers to tackle the men­ace of ter­ror­ism. He fur­ther added there are clear signs of threat to the CPEC con­struc­tion and for that we have to make our se­cu­rity per­son­nels more ef­fi­cient and ac­tive both in qual­ity and quan­ti­tiy. He didn’t en­dorse this un­wise de­ci­sion of the KP gov­erne­ment and reg­is­tered his con­cerns over this de­ci­sion. Now, this has to be seen that the KP govern­ment will take its de­ci­sion back or not? — La­hore
