Promotions In Police Department: Hundreds Of Policemen Awaits Cabinet Nod

KL Report


Hundreds of policemen proposed to be promoted on the basis of seniority are waiting for the nod from the Cabinet. Even after the expiry of three years, Cabinet has not taken any decision in this regard.

Sources told CNS that government had decided to promote hundreds of policemen in police department on seniority basis. Though all the formalities have been completed but State Cabinet has not come up with any decision in this regard.

Scores of policemen told CNS that it is unfortunate that despite serving the State round the clock, the government is insensitive towards their problems.

“Revenue officials went for strike for a month and the government bowed before them and fulfilled their demands. It is unfortunate that we cannot go for an indefinite strike like them,” one of the policeman said.

They said that Director General of Police had met Chief Secretary in this regard who had assured him that he would take up the matter with Finance Minister Abdul Rahim Rather.

Despite repeated attempts the Chief Secretary could not be contacted.
