Balochistan Caretaker Chief Minister, Ali Mardan Domki chaired a high-level meeting regarding the prevailing law and order situation on Saturday.
The outgoing Chief Secretary of Balochistan, Abdul Aziz Uqaili, Additional Chief Secretary (Home), Saleh Muhammad Nasar, Inspector General Police Balochistan, Abdul Khaliq Sheikh and other high-level officers attended the meeting.
Unlike his predecessor, the newly appointed chief minister arrived at the CM secretariat early in the morning. The CM was given a guard of honor by the police contingent. Strict security measures were put in place on the eve of the law and order meeting.
The newly appointed caretaker CM was briefed about the security and law and order situation in eight divisions, 36 districts, and 98 tehsils of Balochistan.
The officials briefed the CM about the steps taken by the police, Frontier Corps, and levies for maintaining the law and order situation in the province.
Speaking on the occasion, Domki directed the law enforcement agencies to double their efforts to maintain law and order situation and protect the lives and properties of the masses. “Ensure the security of life and property of every individual across the province in an efficient manner,” the CM told the officers attending the meeting.
He said the government has decided to ensure transparency and merit in all affairs of the government to facilitate public on a priority basis.
CM Domki urged the officers to instruct every law enforcer to take care of every citizen and follow the rules and regulations while discharging their duties. This meeting has come after a series of low-scale bomb explosions in Quetta and other parts of Balochistan.
It may be recalled that a few days back, the Chinese engineers in Gwadar survived a terrorist attack. Since then the security in the port city is tight.
