ISLAMABAD, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 16th Sep, 2020 ) :Punjab government spokesperson Musarrat Jamshed Cheema Wednesday said that the provincial government was working to uproot 'thana culture' by bringing reforms and equipping the police stations with high-modern technology system on the pattern of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa police.
She regretted that the politics of police stations and courts had inflicted a huge loss on the country in previous two governments, adding, Sindh government should stop criticism as PPP needs to take more solid and practical steps for the betterment of their own ruined police system.
She stresses that in Punjab a modern technology system would be utilized for eradication of crimes and curbing anti-social elements as a number of countries of the world had controlled crimes by using the latest technology.
She further said that the setting up of this modern center would bring about a visible change in the traditional culture of police.
She said previous governments used police for achieving their political objectives but now PTI government has been introducing KP police model in Punjab and posting a well-reputed senior police officer to lead the force transparently.
Cheema said the provincial government had been introducing reforms to change 'thana culture' and provide relief to the complainants.
She said that a law would be uniformed and for all the people without any discrimination, adding, remodeling of old police stations was very significant in empowering people to get their complaints lodged instead of looking for some references to approach police.
