APROPOS the editorial “Ghost pensioners” (Aug 20). This phenomenon should not surprise us. After all, we have ghost teachers, ghost policemen, ghost schools as well as government employees who (when they turn up for work) are so inefficient that they are totally useless.

It seems Pakistan is in danger of becoming a country of ‘the living dead’, and the existence of so many ghosts confirms it.
