The Members of Parliament can soon expect a steep hike in salary as the Centre has decided to give a 100 percent raise, taking their basic pay from Rs 50,000 to one lakh per month.

The Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) is learnt to have agreed to consider a recommendation made by the Joint Committee on Salaries and Allowances of Members of Parliament, which is headed by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Yogi Adityanath.

The PMO is believed to have agreed to revise not only the Parliamentarians’ salary but also their allowances.

The government is also mulling over increasing the President’s salary from current Rs. 1.5 lakh per month to Rs. five lakh and the Governor’s salary from current Rs. 1.10 lakh to Rs. 2.5 lakh.

                          ME AND MY FAMILY VOTED IN PAST FOR CONGRESS BUT AFTER ARRIVAL OF MODI WE ALL VOTED FOR MODI. WE ARE STRONG SUPPORTER OF MODI AS ON DAY- BUT I AM CAUTIONING FROM CORE OF MY HEART - THAT ENHANCING RY AND PERKS OF MPs ( WITH MAJORITY OF BJP MPS IN PARLIAMENT) WILL DESTROY THE GOOD WILL MODI JI HAVE AND WILL LEAD TO DEFEAT OF BJP IN FUTURE ELECTIONS BECAUSE GENERAL PUBLIC AND ALL SENIOR CITIZENS ARE SUFFERING DUE TO LOW INCOME AND LOW INTEREST IN BANK STDR. EVEN WE WILL SEARCH NEXT ALTERNATIVE OF BJP IN CASE RY/ PENSION/ PERKS OF MPs IS INCREASED. WE MUST SEE WHAT RIES ARE BEING PAID IN PVT SECTOR EMPLOYEES WHICH ARE 10 TIMES LESS THAN GOVT RY. OUR HARD EARNED MONEY PAID AS TAX MUST NOT BE WASTED IN PAMPERING MPS.

                            The PM is easily approachable to MPs and hence they got hike whereas RBI pensioners are struggling for the last fifteen years without any rise in pension/family pension. God is mute observer and the persons responsible for delaying is answerable one day or other. This posting is out frustration of GOI MOF inaction on Reserve Banks Pensioners issues.

                                What a nonsense step! Their ries should be increased 5 to 10 times so that they reduce their crookery.

                                  President, vice president and all Govt employees ries hiked or going to be hiked. What about common man who works dawn to dusk all the years to run with their meager income?. All essential commodities have become out of reach of ordinary people. Rent,education, school fees, medicines, transport and electricity like every thing getting away from poor day by day. Most affected people are workers. They work in shops, hotels, malls, market yards and daily wage earners. Irrespective of ruling political front, their political leaders earns and lives happily ignoring common people who voted them in to power.

                                        Hiking ry of President and governors to the said level may be justified in today's Govt. ry scales, but for the MPs? NEVER.......NEVER. They are looting the country and skinning the innocent m...dulging in corrupt practices. lt;br/gt;Within Parliament, they a noisy lot or sleeping shamelessly....contributing nothing, if not negatively. lt;br/gt;We appeal to the Govt., especially to PM, not to indulge in such hilarious act.......
