Nation at 9 with R Shivshankar: Pay and Perks not enough for Ministers ?

Every day that Bihar legislators turn-up to attend the assembly, they get 'bribed' for it!

That's right! Every day the govt lavishes microwaves, suitcases and mobile phones, as an 'incentive' to do their job! This of course is in addition to their myriad perks and privileges they enjoy as legislators.

But it's their ridiculous defence which brings out their apathy to the tax payer. The government dismisses it as a mere pittance. One MLA says it’s part of a tradition; another says every other state does it too!

If that wasn't bad enough, here's the irony. The Bihar govt claims it doesn't have 3.5 lakh rupees to pay salaries of teachers, but they have 32 lakh rupees to splurge on microwaves for their legislators.

Remember, their misplaced priorities are at the cost of your money — the tax payers money.
