Minister of State Engr Muhammad Baligh Ur
Rehman attended the prize distribution ceremony of “Shooting Competition
in the honor of police Shuhda” as a chief guest at Police College
Sihala arranged by National Bureau of Police at Sihala today.
Minister of State congratulated the Director General NPB (National Police Bureau) Mr. Iqbal Mehmood for conducting this significant competition among all the provinces of Pakistan. I feel honored to attend this auspicious gathering to remember our martyrs of Police, said the Minister. As we know that a martyr is not dead, he is alive and his death is the life of the nation in itself so we should never forget our martyrs and should always honor them with great respect. This is the first step of honoring police’s martyrs and there is still room for improvement, stated the minister. Further he added that such competitions are not only momentous to honor our police officers but are equally important to judge and measure the skills of our currently serving police officers.
I would like to see enhancement of skills of our police officers, through these competitions, said the minister. I would also like to request all the provincial police training institutes to invite officers from other provinces and train them in their respective training institutes. There should be some quota dedicated to different provinces for this purpose. Such trainings not only give a platform to share good practices among provinces but also create a unique bond of friendship and brotherhood among the jawaans, stated the minister. I salute all the martyrs and currently serving police officers and jawaans who work day and night for the safety of their citizens even in harsh conditions, admired the Minister.
Minister of State said that the law and order situation is getting better in our country and that because of the clear vision of Prime Minister Nawaz Shareef and his visionary National Action Plan. Monitoring of Madrassas, verification of SIMS, latest equipment for police officers, registration of the criminals in jails, transferring hard criminal to special jails, and training of our officers by the best international trainers are just the few examples of our vision. So we should never lose our hope and should always remain focused to counter terrorism and extremism in our country. We should work in harmony and create synergies among provinces, emphasized the Minister.
In the end Minister of State distributed the prizes among the winners. He thanked the DG NPB and congratulated the officers who won prizes in shooting competition. ICT Police took the trophy of best team in shooting.
