Hyderabad: Opposing the bill adopted by the House enhancing the salaries of the MLAs and MLCs, the CPM MLA Mr Julakanti Ranga Reddy asked the government, which says there was no funds to release for the fees reimbursement scheme, as to how it has increased the salaries of the members.
Speaking at the Assembly media point here on Tuesday, Mr Ranga Reddy alleged that the government was not sanctioning the bills for Indiramma Houses and compensation to the farmers, but was increasing salaries of the elite people. He said that the CPM was seriously opposing the move and added that the Deputy Speaker has not allowed him to speak on it though he requested. He alleged that the government was least bothered about the public grievances, but highly bothered about the salaries of the members. (NSS)
