PM Imran Khan unusual address to Punjab Police and Bureaucracy, promises and warnings
LAHORE - PM Imran Khan has addressed the Punjab Police and Bureaucracy in an unusual address.
He vowed to fix country’s police and bureaucracy by ridding them of political interference.
He promised that the PTI government would not interfere in administrative and professional affairs of police.
“This is a unique government in Pakistan’s history. It will enable you to do your job,” he said. “There will be no pressure on you.”
Khan presented as examples for ‘good governance’.
“We can follow the pattern of governance by adopting the models of Shaukat Khanam Hospital and the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa police.”
“IG KP introduced merit and depoliticised the police department. Even the public protested in favour of police. That was an ideal situation we witnessed in KP. It helped us defeat crime and terrorism,” he said.
He vowed to take action against those government officials who have their own political designs.
“Sever the masses, open your door for poor and protect the weak from stronger,” he said. “New Pakistan is the name of new mindset.”
