Being an old EOBI pensioner, I feel insulted every time I receive my pension of Rs 2000 a month. I ask the concerned authorities that why do pensioners of other categories receive 20 percent increases in the budget when the old-age pensioners are ignored? Why are the EOBI pensioners getting this stepmotherly treatment? The prices are skyrocketing with each passing day but our 'poor-friendly' government is not giving any consideration to plight of the old-age pensioners. -ABID BUTT, Lahore, via e-mail, August 21.
