Construction of dams need of hour to overcome water scarcity: IGP

LAHORE: Inspector General of Police Punjab Dr. Syed Kaleem Imam has said that to overcome water scarcity, construction of dams is the need of hour. Keeping in view the intensity of problem, the officers of Punjab Police will deposit their two days while officials will deposit one day salary in accounts opened by Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Saqib Nisar for the construction of Bhasha and Mohmand Dams. The total sum of amount deposited by 184,000 officers and officials of Punjab police is PKR 124 Million approximately.
IGP further said that Punjab Police always took initiative for public service whether it is fighting terrorism, floods, earthquakes or other natural calamities. Likewise, Punjab police will make their contribution individually and collectively, as other institutions did, for the construction of new dams in the country. He further said that
professionals from all the fields should contribute for the cause so that new dams are constructed as soon as possible to overcome the problems being faced in the development of country due to water shortage. IG Punjab has directed the officers that while ensuring safety and security of the life and property of people; there are some responsibilities as a citizen which they should fulfill with a sense of nationalism. He further said that we should avoid the wastage of water in police lines, training colleges, police stations and other police offices across the province by ensuring the smooth implementation of “Save Water” campaign so that natural resources could be saved for the coming generations. He further said that the sacrifices of 1,400 martyrs of Punjab police depict the level of commitment that the stable future of Pakistan is more important for us than our lives. This step by Punjab police will contribute in further strengthening the spirit of nationalism. IG Punjab endorsed the initiative of dam construction taken by Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Saqib Nisar and said that Pakistan is facing water terrorism at international level and to overcome the issue, we need to build
more dams without any delay. He further said that Punjab police has set tremendous examples of public service in the past as well and we will continue this practice in the best interest of nation’s progress and development.
