Once upon a time, there lived a man by name Gandhi who brought India from past (British rule) to the present (free India) and then left his name for the future. Who could have expected that a title of that half dressed simple man would make a family run the country for generations. And the family in return expressed its gratitude for the title by putting him on currency notes and keeping him close not in the hearts but in the banks. They in fact commemorated the great man’s contribution by paying a rich tribute. Guess what???
UPA 2 has approved the salary hike of MP to 200%. To celebrate the Gandhian values, every MP now takes home Gandhi’s of 45 lakhs per month and there are other allowance too.
An MP gets a monthly salary of 50K per month and 2000 rupees daily allowances for sleeping, shouting and watching porn in the house. An MP is allowed 34 free air journeys in a year with his/her spouse or any number of companions or relatives. The spouse/companion can travel alone eight times in a year to meet the member. By just showing the Identity Card, he/she can travel at any time by any railway in India in first class air-conditioned or executive class. While travelling outside of India, the MP is given free First Class air tickets. And to set an example the granny set 205 crores on foreign visits with the blessing of Madam
An MP is entitled to have three telephones without payment of installation and rental charges.
While in office a Member is allotted a flat without having to pay the licence fee. He/She also gets 50,000 units of electricity and 4,000 KL of water per year. Under the Central Government Health Scheme, the MP and his/her family gets free medical treatment on a monthly contribution of Rs. 500/-. If a person has served as an MP, he/she is entitled to Rs 20,000 per month as pension. If the person has served for more than five years, then he/she gets an additional 1,500/- per month.
This is not even half the story.
TOTAL expense for a MP [having no qualification] per year : Rs.60,95,000
For 534 MPs , the expense for 1 years : Rs. 325,47,30,000
3254730000 X 5 years = Rs. 1627,36, 50000 ( One Thousand six hundred crores plus..)
Well Done UPA 2, what a way to pay tribute to Gandhi!!!
