  1. It is not wrong that half of India wealth is spending on politics and politicians. Time to think and reshuffle the waging system. Politicians opposed each other in every issue but supports in salary hike. Even PM MODI also includes

  2. Highest tex paid state assam many times… But MLA sallery is only to low comparatively other state

  3. Why are the salaries of MLA / MPs decided by themselves? It sounds ridiculously funny. Why so much huge salaries needed to be paid to them in addition to the allowances what they are getting? If the govt is seriously thinking about poverty, farmers, education, health care sectors, then this kind of hike need to be stopped. Again there is wage revision or pay commission every now and then. There should be performance based hike not the hike to all of them. Looks like there is chaddi allowance also for the MLAs. So whenever these MLAs get hike do the Public sector and pvt sector employees also get the hike? And if not why? What factors decide to get a hike? Are these factors relevant to the other working class? Do they not consider the conditions of the country like agriculture, healthcare, education, economy etc while granting the hike to themselves? What if they dont get hike, cannot they manage with the existing salary? There are people working and living with much less salaries so why the MLAs cannot do their job with the same existing salaries? Is there something they are doing extraordinary. I am really amused. Also apart from the salary details mentioned above there are certain other perks like canteen subsidy or LPG subsidy and some other official facilities based on day to day duties of the MLAs like travel etc. And above all we all know how an MLA recommendation works in India for common man in schools, colleges, govt offices and even in non-govt offices to get the work done.

  4. After 58 yrs A Govt.Employee have to retire but there is no limit of Age or no qualification even then they are being paid to much salary . It is injustice with qualified student who are unemployed after getting too much degrees and other P.hd but thay are not posted . Our poetics is not serious for public domesdtic problems but they are hrssing . They should be paid only allowance for Ijlaas days. They are very burden on the Public Tax which they pay for basic facility. No education,Health service,No MRO for the crops,no markeeting , oN tv ALL PARIES are making fool to peaples. No roads,No railway line Abohar To Fazilka Line made in 50 years.It is not good for everyone. Public should be aware.

  5. Why pm not call to their minister to give up them allowance & facilities?
    Only they told public to give up ur subcidy in lpg & senior citizens to give up concessions.
    Why our minister not use electric vehicles?
    They get Rs. 16 per km. All we know all the private vehicles like luxury sedan price 12 to 14 rupee so why they require 16 rupee.

  6. is there any use to us by giving huge ammount of salaries to M.L.A’s and other politicians
