It has been recently reported that the patrolling bikes allocated for Punjab Police in Lahore, are being used by other government departments and personnel. This is a dire situation indeed, where hindrances and hurdles are preventing the police, in using the full potential of the available resources. The police are already suffering at the hands of neglect, corruption and mismanagement. It is also under considerable pressure due to the rise in terrorism, for delivering security to the citizens of this country. As a concerned citizen, it is an appeal to all the higher authorities and administration that proper resources should be guaranteed and provided to the police, so they can perform their duties.
