SUCI(C) vehemently protests the recommendation to increase allowances of MPs & Ex-MPs

Strongly criticizing the recommendation of the Parliamentary Panel to increase salary, allowances & other facilities of the MPs and Ex-MPs from Rs 50,000 to Rs. 1,00,000 and Rs.20,000 to Rs.50,000 respectively, above 100%, Shri Provash Ghosh, General Secretary, SUCI(C), has issued the following statement today : —
In a Country, where crores and crores of people are unemployed, i.e. having no income at all and where about 74% people cannot spend more that Rs 20 per day there to recommend for such a 100% increase of the MPs and Ex-MPs of whom many are crorepatis, is not only highly irrational but also patently anti-people. This may inspire some parties to demand for increase the allowances of the MLAs, Councilors etc. MPs, MLAs etc. who are actually peoples representatives and not govt. employees. So that they can demand for yearly increment of their allowances.
We strongly demand of the Central Government to reject totally the recommendation of the Parliamentary panel.
We also request the political parties particularly the Left and democratic parties to raise voice against this most unreasonable and anti-people recommendation
