Islamabad: The welfare of policemen is the first priority of top brass of Islamabad police and its employees will be provided every possible facility to improve their performance and come up to the expectations of the masses.
It was stated by Senior Superintendent of Police (Traffic) Dr. Moeen Masood in a ceremony held on Wednesday at Pakistan Council of Research in Water Resources (PCRWR) office to distribute 200 umbrellas containing water conservation messages to Islamabad Traffic Police.
The umbrellas have been developed by MAWCD Project along with other different types of publicity/information material containing water conservation messages as part of their awareness campaign. The National Project Director of MAWCD, Mr. Saeed Javed, the National Project Manager, Dr. Abdul Majeed, other PCRWR officials and the project personnel of MAWCD Project were also present.
The SSP (Traffic) said that the umbrellas are meant to be distributed among ITP’s Traffic cops who perform their duties in scorching heat. The SSP Islamabad Traffic Police, Dr. Moeen Masood, praised the efforts of PCRWR and MAWCD and said ITP was ready to extend full support for their campaign.
He said that Inspector General of Police (IGP) Wajid Ali Khan Durrani has also directed all police officials to resolve the problems of their subordinates on priority and take necessary measures for their welfare so that their performance might further be improved. He said every possible effort would be made to ensure maximum facilitation to the cops for their better performance.
It is to mention that Pakistan Council of Research in Water Resources (PCRWR) and Islamabad Traffic Police (ITP) have joined hands to disseminate the message of water conservation through supporting PCRWR’s Mass Awareness for Water Conservation and Development Project (MAWCD), which aims to educate the masses on water conservation through running a mass awareness campaign
On the occasion, the Chairman, PCRWR Dr. Mohammad Aslam Tahir said that increasing demand of water in Pakistan for agriculture, industries, environment and household use was putting substantial pressure on the limited water resources and the country was passing through water crisis which was increasingly becoming a major political, socio-economic and development issue
The National Project Director, Mr. Saeed Javed said the “current water situation has increased the need for us to act collectively towards sustainable use and management of water resources”.
Dr. Abdul Majeed, the National Project Manager, MAWCD, pointed out that the annual per capita water availability in the country was about 1000 cubic meters which, in early 1950s, was about 5600 cubic meter, which shows that our water resources have decreased to about 80 per cent.
