Not in favour of hiking salary of MLAs: Goa CM


Panaji: Goa Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar today said he was not in favour of increasing salary of MLAs on lines of the Delhi Government.

“(Delhi CM Arvind) Kejriwal is not my role model and I am not in favour of hiking salaries of MLAs,” Parsekar told reporters.

He was responding to a query on whether raise in perks and monthly emoluments of legislators is on cards in Goa.

The Delhi Assembly yesterday cleared a bill providing for hefty hike in salaries of MLAs and ministers. As per its provision, the basic salary of legislators will rise from current Rs 12,000 to Rs 50,000 and their overal monthly package will be around Rs 2.1 lakh as against Rs 88,000 at present.
