Recently it has been reported that there have been major reshuffles in Punjab Police. It has been mostly observed that postings and appointments in police department are mostly under political pressures or favoritism. As a concerned citizen, it is suggested that any appointments or postings should be clear of such nepotism and should be done on merit and performance of the police personnel. As the law and order situation in the country needs immediate and priority attention, the performance of police should also be improved. The citizens still look towards this institution with the hope that it will deliver and serve them in this hostile situation. YASIR HAMEED, Islamabad, June 16.
