MP Govt Nods to Hike MLAs salary & allowance – The decision was taken on Wednesday at the State Cbinet meeting chaired by MP Govt CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan.
MLAs in MP Govt are set to become richer with the MP Govt led by CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan giving a nod to hike their salary and allowance on Wednesday.
The decision was taken on Wednesday at the State Cabinet meeting chaired by MP Govt CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan.
The Bill to this effect is expected to be tabled on Thursday during the ongoing budget session of the House for clearance, which is going to be a mere formality, as the MLAs from all parties want the hike, a senior state minister said.
The Madhya Pradesh unit of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) today opposed the BJP government’s move to raise the salary and alllowances of MLAs in the state.
“When AAP government had raised the salary of its MLAs in Delhi, BJP staged a massive protest against it and today it is doing the same thing in Madhya Pradesh,” AAP national spokesperson and MP Coordinator Alok Agarawal said in a statement.
“It is highly shameful on the part of state government to raise the salaries of legislators especially when it is reeling under heavy debt, farmers were not getting compensation and it is a big example of the government’s anti-people act,” he added.
