Q.

The Planning Commission in an affidavit to Supreme Court stated that Rs. 25 in rural areas and Rs. 32 in urban areas per day were sufficient to cover expenditure on food, education and health.- in that case is there any justification for the MLAs and M.P s glamouring for hike in their income and benefits ?

Tags: money, health, commission

What a JOKE ! Joke of the year...... I doubt whether anybody from planning commission stepped out of his Airconditioned Chamber or Car to see the ground realities before making such affidavit. I suggest give all of them double the amount and let them show how they will manager everything.

Affidavit filing in courts has become another joke now a days. Such irresponsible things are leading to more corruption, look at what police constable is getting, look at the Ticket Collector in Rly is drawing , with prices rocketing sky-high how can they fulfil basic needs ....Even strong Lokpal will not help, country need total face-lifting in all areas.

Leave alone what the M.P.s and M.L.A.s demand; thank God they are not asking for salary twice a month or every week doubling or quadrupling the present. The planning Commissions estimate is quite unimaginative, unreasonable and ridiculous, to say the least. What impression and what utility they have. Like the government is the planning commission to plan the disaster of Bharat.

Abraham Lincoln had said ..all men are created equal. But to dash that equality, he was shot dead. And a new set of words added to his created proverb ............All people are equal and some people are more equal (sic) privileged. So MPs can bring privilege motion. Therefore it is natural that their income cannot be at par with that of pavement dweller. The clamoring is justified.

If Rs 50 is sufficient in overall area then (as you have mentioned) what can farmer get if the cost of processed food is like this , If anyone is making any business at rs 25 or 32 what can he earn !
similarly recently one article is published at reddif about the rent persq meter in some cities, where most of the business is carried out , why these people no do business at such places in India,
Secondly Responsibilties Of MLA nad MPS cannot be corelated with other citizens, so comparing their income and benefits is not justified ,
