Oppose our MPs' self approved pay hike sign now

Sub : We, the citizens of this country, strongly oppose the bill to hike salaries of MPs from Rs.16000 to Rs.50000 per month

Hon'ble Sir/Madam,

The common man in our country is facing countless hardships since last two years due to economic melt down and unprecedented price rise and it is becoming increasingly difficult for him/her to meet the ends. An additional burden of Rs. 142 crore is now thrust upon the aam aadmi of the country. At this juncture, MPs have been availing decent salaries, allowances and lot of other benefits and more than half of our MPs are crore patis . MPs stay in prime locales. They fly business class. They, along with spouse and attendant, are allowed unlimited AC rail travel. Their basic domestic and all working expenses are taken care of.
The clamour of MPs for a raise comes at a time when their productivity has slid. In 2009, Lok Sabha was convened for a mere 64 days, a number steadily falling from the 151 sittings in 1956. They passed 30 legislative bills, but hardly discussed or debated them. In the winter session alone, eight bills were cleared in less than five minutes.

Their actual total earnings account upto Rs.45 lakhs per annum is now changed to nearly Rs.61 lakhs per annum.

As per their affidavits with the Election Commission, the average assets of a Lok Sabha MP at Rs 4-5 crore, even after excluding three MPs with assets of over Rs 100 crore from the calculation.

There are MPs who are not that wealthy, and could do with more support from the system. The odds are stacked against the not-so-rich politician. In the 2009 Lok Sabha polls, just 0.43\% of candidates with less than Rs 10 lakh in assets got elected. And it is so gaucherie to see our MPs stall valuable Parliament time, greedily demanding for more.

Please note that we voters are strongly opposing the bill of salary hike of MPs and request you to withdraw the same and at least try to uphold the already diminishing faith of people on our political system.
