Imran says politicisation, end of merit destroyed professionalism in police

LONDON, 16 APR (DNA) – Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan on Saturday criticised the government over failed operation against Chotu gang citing politicisation and end of merit reasons for dismal police performance in the province.

Imran Khan used social media platform to criticise the provincial government. He accused provincial government of politicisation and dubbed it as reason behind police’s failure against organised criminals in Kacha Jamal area.

He stated that professionalism was destroyed in Punjab Police after government did not care about merit. The government, negligent of merit is responsible for lives of police personnel lost in Rajanpur, he added.

He utilized the opportunity to detach practices of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Police with those of Punjab Police. Khan stated that personnel were recruited in police in PTI-led province through NTS test.

He also said that the KP Police is depoliticised and professional unlike Punjab Police. On the other hand, after police’s failure in operation against Chotu gang army has stepped in to handle the situation. More than 600 army troops reached Kacha Jamal One and Kacha Jamal Two areas on Friday.

At least 40 dacoits and miscreants have laid down weapons so far after army’s participation in the offensive. Police lost seven lives in a clash with terror outfits-backed miscreants earlier this week while 24 personnel were taken hostage.

According to the latest development, troops have besieged the island in Indus River in Southern Punjab henceforth a conclusive action is likely to be carried out anytime. DNA
