Surprise indeed.

QUETTA, January 30, 2010 (Balochistan Times): It was a pleasant surprise indeed not only for the female students but the entire nation when Prime Minister Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani made an unannounced visit to F.G Model Girls High School located in G-8/4. This visit was well taken by majority and masses were delighted to see the Chief Executive of the country mingling with students and giving ample time to them. PM attended a social studies class and preferred to take a brief class himself. What would you like to become when you grow up he asked the students- Anchorpersons, Politicians or Judges---- non of the students responded in affirmative, rather they planned to opt for other traits when they grow up. PM also choose to use a white board during his inter action with students and his hand writing was indeed good, could fall in the category of being very good. Students and staff were delighted to see Prime Minister among them and they enjoyed every moment of it. He has a good hand writing, a student quipped, his brief lecture was impressive, maintained another, he taught me how to use both hands while handling a computer, stated another student. Taking out time from his tight schedule impressed all, masses look forward for such visits. Sitting with students while doing away all protocols was called for and much awaited, one hopes that Mr. Gilani spares more time for such endeavours-Abu Raheel Police protest for raise in salaries was justified but manner in which it was done was wrong. QUETTA: Provincial Police Officer (PPO) Syed Javed Shah Bokhari has categorically stated that the police department was facing problem in maintaining law and order in Balochistan owing to the lack of resources and threats to the officers from the miscreants. The police could just give general protection to the people, but it couldnt provide protection to every individual and as such it was a wrong perception that it (police) would be every where (to protect people) applying magic and stop the things from being happened. If the police was provided abundant resources then there could be improvement in the police system, stated the PPO in an exclusive interview here on Saturday. The Balochistans police head said that the issue of terrorism couldnt be countered through normal policing, and for the purpose of countering the type of terrorism going on in the province, there is a need to strengthen the police department. He also regretted that police department lacks the dedicated officers to counter the terrorism in the province. He noted that the local police get threats while the officers coming outside (the province) are also scared in discharging their professional duties. However, he was confident that the policing could be improved by providing the enough resources in the province. To a query, he said that the incidents of the bomb blasts have been overcome, however we are looking for a breakthrough into the sectarian target killings, in which we have not yet got much success. Referring the incidents of the target killings, he noted that seven districts are affected by the target killings with Bolan, Mastung and Khuzdar being worst effected. He regretted that the doctors and barbers are targeted, who otherwise happen to be the easy targets (for the miscreants). About the police protest in Quetta last week, the provincial Police chief said that the protest was right but the way they adopted to press their demand was a wrong. He said that the entire incident is being thoroughly looked into. Some 11 personnel have been arrested in this regard while 54 others have been identified. He also said that the steps would be taken to resolve the issue of the low salary / wages of the police employees once Chief Minister Balochistan Nawab Muhammad Aslam Raisani reaches Quetta . To a query regarding the Friday Hazar Ganji bus terminal firing incident in which three Zaireen (pilgrims) had been killed and five others injured, the Police chief said that the investigations are being made into the incident. He said that a culprit has been identified into the crime.
