    The Chief Minister should demote all Police Officers who got out of turn promotions, as there is no such law exists in the country.

    I don’t understand as why Police Officials who perform well immediately become “Blue Eyes Boys” of the local administration, though recommendation letters and cash awards should have be more than enough for them.

    I would request the Chief Minister to abide the judgement of Supeme Court of Pakistan without any further delay.
