Plea against new police uniform dismissed

Plea against new police uniform dismissed

LAHORE

The Lahore High Court Chief Justice Syed Mansoor Ali Shah on Thursday dismissed a petition challenging introduction of new uniform for police force in Punjab and imposed a fine of Rs10,000 on petitioner for filing frivolous petition.

Advocate Mian Shabbir Ismail had filed the petition through his counsel, Azhar Siddique, pleading that the government’s decision of changing police uniform instead of changing police culture was irrational.

He also questioned tender given to mills for manufacturing of the new uniform alleging that procurement rules had been violated by the government.

The petitioner said instead of wasting public money on uniform, the money should be spent on improving the police culture and all the basic facilities for the betterment of the citizens of Punjab.

The lawyer asked the court to set aside the tender process for the new police uniform for being in violation of the rules. 

The Punjab government had stated that no rule had been violated in introducing new uniform for the police force in the province.

It said the police uniform had been changed lawfully and procurement rules had been strictly followed in awarding contract for manufacturing of the uniform.
