Indian MP’s ( Member of Parliament) want 5 times salary hike.

A Parliamentary committee has recommended that the monthly salary of MPs should be hiked five times from Rs 16,000 to Rs 80,000.

Price hike in Petrol, Gas, Diesel that affects in price raise of transportation cost that directly affects in cost hike of vegetables, food and other everyday products.  Inflation has already crossed the limits and its impossible to survive common and middle man. This the current condition of country and  MP’s – Member of Parliament asking for 5 times salary hike.

I would like to mention one example of England, where the salaries of the lawmakers were frozen due to the impact of recession.

Public: First time in the world someone expecting 5 times salary hike for doing nothing.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister P K Bansal said “Nothing has been finalized. Everything is under discussion. Very soon, we will take it up with concerned ministries. We hope to take it to the Cabinet so as to introduce a bill in the coming session of Parliament”

In justification of hike Bansal said Government employees got sixth pay commission hike and there have been a hike in the pay packages of private sector employees too.

Public: How he can compare MP’s with private sector employees,

1) cause private sector employees need to face do or die situation every day to earn that salary.

2) MP’s can run their business, private sector employees can not do cause its against rule.

3) MP’s have no responsibility and accountability, there are doing their assigned works even.

4) as per one channels surve average asset of MP is above 1 crore. ( what is the need of salary for them)

5) MP’s having many economical resources unlike private sector employees.

6 ) Allowances, Perks and facilities MP’s are having like Free 1st Ac Train Travel, Free Air Journeys and many things unlike private sector employees.

Public thinks MP’s should not get hike, cause MP’s does not deseve.
