“I can’t say that it’s my campaign anymore. So many people have joined in, and my WhatsApp chats are flooded. I have been sent more than 300 photos in the last few days alone,” said Khan.

“A democracy is of the people, by the people and for the people, and police officers are not exempt from this. We have just started the campaign, but we are planning to do much more,” he added.

“Just like the traffic police are worried about us, we are also worried about them. They should also be safe, and not die in accidents,” Khan said.
