Pensioners’ pitiable plight

Dr Ikram Azam

This is with reference to letter published by Pakistan Observer on 18 May. The greatest injustice that the Govt. continues to perpetuate for decades now is to defy the principle of: ‘the same grade / rank, same pay’. This defiance is totally unjust, immoral and illegal. It is about time that this perpetual injustice is rectified legally.
Therefore, the government is urged to introduce the said principle as a policy in the 2016-17 budget. That will be a steady source of secure relief to senior pensioners who retired long ago in the 1990s and thereafter. Thereby, the government will surely win their thanks — if not votes, as-well.
