Peshawar: KP Chief Minister Pervez Khattak has said that PTI led coalition govt after freeing police department from political interference and making it dignified independent organization has proved that we have no malicious personal or political designs like that of the past traditional rulers and politicians.
He said we were eager to provide such conducive environment to the people that was free from unrest, terror, corruption and other social evils wherein the difference between rich, poor, powerful and pathetic ended for good and all citizens were given pure justice and equal chances of prosperity. “Now the fate of people will not be decided in Hujras of influential but dutiful police officers and reliable citizens will provide them respect and protection as well as solve their petty cases” he added saying that police stations would then turn into reform centers.
He was talking to the city elite and media personnel after inaugurating three model police stations in Peshawar. These included Gulbahar, Faqirabad and Town police stations. Speaker KP Assembly Haji Asad Qaiser, Minister for Mineral Development and focal person/coordinator mega projects Ziaullah Afridi, IGP Nasir Khan Durrani, Secretary Home Department Syed Akhter Ali Shah, other high ups of civil and police department as well as the city and PTI elite also accompanied him. On this occasion, he inspected various sections of the model police station in Gulbahar and apprised himself of its workings.
Addressing the inaugural ceremony Pervez Khattak said that the visible process of change and reformation has been started in police department. He reiterated that we would not leave this process of change incomplete but would achieve its each and every goal as well as would benefit the people of its fruits. He said though the reform program has been initiated with three model police stations in Peshawar, but this course would be continued with momentum and soon all the police stations in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa would become models automatically.
He said basic needs of all police stations would also be fulfilled and would be equipped accordingly whereas a complainant of any gender on entering a police station would be received by concerned male or female police officer in a friendly manner and would be cent percent satisfied. He said that congenial environment has been provided in the model police stations for registration of complaints and FIRs with a atomized system of check and balance.
Chief Minister said that his govt was bringing about a real change in the society rather than hallow slogans like that of the past rulers. He expressed the confidence that police officials would also abruptly change their behaviour with people. He said that police force has been equipped with latest know how as well as separate departments of training, investigation and intelligence have been setup to eliminate crimes and ensure law & order. He saluted the bravery of KP Police and civil administration saying that they are discharging their responsibilities in befitting manner. He said that the home and tribal affairs department was being further streamlined with a greater role in this regard.
Pervez Khattak deplored that the people of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa had to bear the brunt of the ill conceived policies of the past regimes wherein an unending process of unrest and terrorism reined all over here and thousands of innocent people and security officials including our valiant police jawans lost their precious lives in suicide and terrorist incidents. He said corruption was the basic cause of all faults that had infused in all sectors right from the ruling class to the departments and hence institutions were weakened considerably.
However he said that people voted PTI govt into power in the last general election with the hope of changing this mess of affairs. He said that we focused our attention not only to wipe out corruption from the society but to strengthen all govt departments including police to deliver and satisfy the masses. He contended that our police has turned into an exemplary force then and we are rightly proud on it.
Chief Minister regretted that in the past, our rulers used to claim that they were in state of war every time when our innocent people and security jawans were killed in terror acts in cold blood but these rulers did not heed to take any steps for enabling its police force to combat such terror acts.
He said police was only meant for securing its citizens and controlling the crimes but the present PTI govt has trained, equipped and enabled its police to face any eventuality including the acts of terrorism. He said that peace has been greatly restored in the province but now we had to control the incidents of abduction for ransom, dacoity, assassination and other social crimes and soon we would be able enough to uproot all such crimes and evils for good owing to our candid steps. “Attainment of a secure, just and prosperous society through socio-economic and human resource development, creation of equal opportunities, good governance and optimal utilization of resources in a sustainable manner is vision of his govt”, he asserted and reiterated the pledge that we would ensure achieving all our goals and cherishing the agenda of change within five years span of PTI-led coalition govt.
