Bangla Hunt Desk: Like the central government, the Yogi government of Uttar Pradesh is preparing to reduce the salaries of all MLAs by 5 percent. Not only that, all MLA Funds will be suspended for two years. For up to two years, the legislators' funds will be used for the Covidium-I epidemic. The Yogi government is about to bring in an ordinance soon.
It should be noted that a significant decision was taken at a cabinet meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, according to which the funds of the MPs have been suspended for two years. In addition to this, the salaries of the President, the Prime Minister and the MPs will be deducted 5 percent to deal with Corona. The decision will be implemented from April 1, 2021.
After this decision, the President, the Vice-President and the Governor also voluntarily announced where they would take less than one year's salary. Yogi Adityanath welcomed the central government's decision. He then took initiative to enforce this rule in Uttar Pradesh as well. The Uttar Pradesh government has announced that the salaries of all the MLAs in the state will be reduced by 5 percent and the funds of the MLAs will be suspended for two years. The Uttar Pradesh government will implement the rules only after getting a copy of the decision from the central government.
All political parties have responded to this decision by the Yogi government. The Samajwadi Party has supported the government's decision. But they also say that the government has to pay every penny. Samajwadi Party leader Anurag Bhadoria said, “Cut the salary as much as you need.” We are all on our side during this crisis. But the government has to give an account to the people. The state government should also tell you where the money was spent and how?
