Anyone who knows what the salary of a minister or MLA of ours is, the government does not understand. The MLAs have a salary of Rs 70000, ministers a salary of Rs 1,50,000 lakh, and the chief minister a salary of Rs 2,00,000 lakh. Not only that but even if you sit for just Rs 1000, Kerala will sell you Rs 1500. They get lakhs every month. If he retires after all this, he will receive a pension of Rs 8,000 in two years and Rs. If he is an MLA for five years, he gets a pension of Rs. 10000.
And every year, you get Rs. 1000, Rs. 1,500, and Rs. 3000. What is it like to take such a lot of money and give a pension of Rs? 10,000 per month to poor people?
Whatever the issue, this government’s first step is to cut pensions, which is their main step. Even with all this, the government is reluctant to give Rs.
