CM -'One MLA, one pension' will revolutionise and reform the Indian political System
Chandigarh, (Gurpreet) Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann today said that the notification implementing 'One MLA one pension' in Punjab will revolutionize and reform the Indian political system. " It is a humble initiative by the Aam Aadmi party government to realise the dreams of our freedom fighters and national heroes", he said.
In a statement issued here, the Chief Minister said that our great freedom fighters had dreamed of a class -less democracy where elected representatives will work as the real servants of people and ensure their well being. But in the last 75 years these elected representatives have turned into political executives by drawing extravagant salaries and pensions from the state exchequer. Bhagwant Mann said that the entire burden of this facility extended to these leaders was met by taxpayers. Their money was misused to fill the pockets of these leaders instead of being used for public welfare.
