PIA pensioners were shocked to note that the PIA management is planning to get rid of all PIA pensioners (about 16,000) if it is privatised.
The parliament at its joint session had declared that no beneficiary of PIA would be deprived of his facilities if PIA is privatised.
The PIA board of directors has recently decided to dump all its 16,000 retirees by paying them an undeclared package, thereby increasing their financial problems.
The PIA management should reconsider its decision.
