Somewhere in Telangana....

The Telangana Legislative Assembly unanimously passed a bill that envisages over a 250% salary hike for legislators even as farmers in the state are facing one of the worst droughts in recent times.
With the Telangana Payment of Salaries and Pensions and Removal of Disqualifications (Amendment) Bill-2016 getting the assembly's nod, MLAs and MLCs' salary will now be Rs.2.75 lakh, inclusive of all allowances and perks. Until last month, their salary was Rs.1.25 lakh a month.“The decision to raise pay was taken in view of rising prices, cost of living and voters' ever-increasing expectation of voters from their constituencies,“ CM K Chandrasekhar Rao said.
