  2. It is not understandable why the CM so soon approved and announced 100% increment in the salary of police department in Gilgit-Baltistan. Some will argue that it was necessary as in the rest of the provinces of the country the salary of police was raised by 100%. While comparing the salaries of the police in GB with other provinces some facts should have been considered.

    In GB the police department is much at ease as compared to other provinces. There existing salaries were even higher than what they do. The crime rate in GB almost equals zero and police have very little to worry about law and order situation.

    Terrorism has been a big issue in other provinces, where the police have to remain alert throughout day and night. Police have been the target of terrorist attacks in many places in Khyber-PakhtoonKhawa and Punjab and police have performed heroically in face of the terrible situation. The police department in those provinces well deserve 100% increase.

    There are drug Mafia, violent groups, robbers and looters, ethnic and many other kind of miscreants in other provinces; and GB, by the grace of God is free from such elements and police do not have any real challenge.

    Currently the unprecedented development of media has exposed police to more accountability, which has increased the burden on the shoulder of police and their responsibilities have increased many folds, but again it is true about other provinces of Pakistan and not about GB.

    In recent years, the police (which is of course, still the number 1 corrupt is in Pakistan!) has set many examples of sacrifice and bravery, which has resulted in recognition of their services and resultantly they have been given 100% increment. We do not have any of these examples from GB police, so do they deserve this increase?
