FIX SALARIES OF MPS, MLAS

-

MPs have asked for a two-fold in­crease of their salaries and perks even as they con­tinue to en­joy daily al­lowance and other ben­e­fits. MPs and MLAs, who waste time in squab­bles and ver­bal du­els, sink their dif­fer­ences when it comes to rais­ing their salaries. There should be a con­sti­tu­tional body or a pay com­mis­sion to de­ter­mine their emol­u­ments in the same pe­ri­od­ic­ity as for the Cen­tral or state gov­ern­ment em­ploy­ees.
