OUR STAFF REPORTER LAHORE The masses will demand Armys help if the Punjab government keeps on failing on the promise to protect the life and property of its subjects, warns a PML-Q white-paper. Chaudhary Zaheerud Din, the PML-Qs general secretary for Punjab issued the white-paper on Monday. Coining a new term to portray the picture of the province, he claimed that Punjab has been made hostage by the dacoits and dengue virus. The white-paper claimed 33,000 incidents of kidnapping for ransom had taken place across the province since 2009. It further claimed that 13,500 incidents of robbery and street crime were taking place in Punjab every day, while the crime rate was increasing in three major districts of the province including Lahore, Faisalabad and Gujranwala. It maintained that 3,600 robberies and street crime occurred in Lahore between June and August this year, while the dacoits had deprived the Lahorites of Rs370 million, Rs190 million and Rs220 million in the months of June, July and August, respectively. It asserted that crimes against women were increasing in the province, while 6995 crimes committed in 2009 against the women, while a total of 3055 crimes committed against women from January 2011 to August 2011. Zaheer claimed that Punjab government has directed the station house officers to follow 'go slow policy in a bid to register minimum number of cases. He said that PML-Q would take up the issue of law and order in the upcoming session of the Punjab Assembly and hoped that Chief Minister would take part in the debate. PML-Q leader also said that it had submitted several adjournment motions and call attention notices relating to the law and order in the Punjab Assembly. Meanwhile, Chuadhary Zaheer, who is also chairman Public Accounts Committee (PAC-1), chaired a meeting of the Committee, which discussed audit paras of the Labour and Human Resource Department.
