The AAP MLA’s have backed the demand for a 400% salary hike on the grounds that they comes from a humble background and cannot survive in the present salaries paid to them by the exchequer. But NEWSX decided to investigate this claim.
The election watchdog ADR has studied the affidavits of the MLA’s and has discovered that 41 of 67 of them are Crorepatis and 23 have criminal cases against them. The figures totally expose the AAP’s neediness not for a salary hike but for perks and privileges at the cost of the tax payer. So when Raghav Chaddha of the AAP was accusing NEWSX of misleading the public, I am afraid to say tongue firmly in cheek that we were. We only gave half the story and only that half that made the AAP’s demand look genuine. Had we done our homework yesterday and brought out the fact that 60% of the AAP MLA’s are Crorepatis we would have perhaps exposed the party earlier.
