Telecom pensioners – a letter to editor the daily Dawn

Karachi (Daily Dawn / Tuesday, December 11, 2012) – I WOULD like to draw the attention of all concerned, especially the Ministry of Information Technology and Telecommunications, towards a humanitarian issue of more than 40,000 Telecom pensioners across Pakistan.

These federal government pensioners, including 12,000 widows and orphans, are in miserable conditions for the last three years due to denial of increase in pension and the medical allowance by Pakistan Telecommunications Employees Trust (PTET) as announced in 2010-11, 2011-12 and even in 2012-13 by the government.

These increases had regularly been paid to us for 14 consecutive years by the PTET after its establishment in 1991.

PTET, working under the Ministry of Information Technology and Telecommunication, has denied the grant of increases as announced by the government.

The prime minister, the president and the chief justice are requested to take notice of the defiance of the government.

    This is for inf0rmation to all ptcl pensioners that Line man (Rtd) named Ali Mohammad Expired at ptcl dispensary today morning as on 02.02 2013 while he was waiting for his treatement in serious condition. This is the policy of the company to kill the pensioners without medical treatment and without financial benefits. This is the time of thinking for all concerned. God Help us. KHALID PARVAIZ
