10,000 individuals will be hired in National Highways and Motorway Police (NH&MP) quite soon. The hiring will be made to cater the jobs brought up by China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).
At the 20th Raising Day of NH&MP at DIG Hamid Shakeel Shaheed Auditorium, this news was reported.
Minister of State for Communications stated “Today’s ceremony is the acknowledgment of excellent performance of this esteemed organization. It is my earnest desire that this force not only sustains its efficiency but to improve it. While appreciating the performance of Motorway Police, I would also like to acknowledge the support & patronage of the present government in providing necessary facilities.”
The Minister further said, “NH&MP is extending its excellent services for road users traveling on Highways and Motorways to make their journey safer and secure.”
He further informed that the government is starting many huge development projects in the country.
He said, “These projects will play a pivotal role in achieving economic objectives of the country. The responsibilities of NH&MP, after completion of these projects, are going to increase manifolds.”
IG, NH&MP Dr. Syed Kaleem Imam said that National Highway and Motorway Police are working effortlessly to minimize road accidents and maintain road discipline via education, awareness and constructive enforcement.
Iftikhar Rashid, Raffat Pasha, Dr. Waseem Kausar, Zaffar Abbas Lak and Zulfiqar Ahmed Cheema, former Inspectors General of Police also hoped and well wished for the success of the institution.
CPEC is not just bringing development projects to Pakistan. It is a complete game changer. If the project can minimize unemployment in Pakistan, it will be a great achievement. Despite this, the debt issue, the number of loans taken for this project cannot be ignored. The short-term effects of CPEC might seem fruitful but the long-term expected effects are troubling.
