Tug of war: The conflict between the Center and Punjab over the transfer of the CCPO has intensified. The clash between the Center and the provincial government has intensified over the transfer of Lahore Central City Police Officer (CCPO) as Punjab Chief Minister. Chaudhry Parvez Elahi clarified that no official of Punjab can be removed illegally without the consent of the state government.

Elahi said this while addressing a police conference at the Civil Secretariat’s Durbar Hall on Wednesday, a day after Lahore’s CCPO Ghulam Mehmood Dogar was asked to step down by the federal government.

Sources said the PML-N government was upset over the registration of a case against its MNA Javed Latif for which the CCPO was held responsible. However, the Chief Minister has asked the CCPO to continue the work.

The Chief Minister said that the Punjab government can constitutionally and legally restrain the officials keeping in mind the public interest.

“We will increase residential facilities for officials in the Government Officers’ Residence (GOR). Residences in GOR will be downsized and apartments will be built as there are many residences in eight kanals in GOR. We will establish 150 police patrolling posts and the special police force will be given a special pay package in rural areas.
