New Delhi: The Delhi government has admitted that a few members of the Aam Aadmi Party were getting benefits like official house and cars.

This was revealed by the government in a reply to BJP legislator O.P. Sharma’s question in the Delhi assembly on Tuesday.

The government said these members were appointed as co-terminus staff with it.

Bibhav Kumar, private secretary to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, and Aswathi Muralidharan, joint secretary to the chief minister, have been allotted houses.

The salary of these people, who are in the grade pay of Rs.8,700, is equivalent to senior Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officers, the government said.

Apart from 17 co-terminus staff, eight contractual staff have been hired and get a salary of Rs.60,000 to Rs.1.15 lakh.

The Delhi government on Sunday said it is seeking legal advice on the further course of action after the Delhi High Court quashed its notification on minimum wages.

Expressing his disappointment over the Court’s decision, Delhi Labour Minister Gopal Rai said that the government is studying the verdict and “will arrive at a conclusion on how to ensure the implementation of revised higher minimum wages” for workers in all categories.

“I have convened a meeting of the Labour Department on Monday to decide the future course of action, including the next legal remedy available to the government,” Rai said.

The Delhi High Court on Saturday quashed two notifications, issued last year by the Delhi Government, relating to revision of minimum wages for all classes of workmen in all scheduled employments by calling it “completely flawed”.

“The constitution of the committee was completely flawed and its advice was not based on relevant material and suffers from non-application of mind,” the bench said while setting aside the Delhi government notification setting up the advisory panel on minimum wages.

“The government’s decision based on such advice is in violation of the statutory provision, principles of natural justice, denies fair representation to the employers as well as the employees… in fact it is even without any effort to gather relevant material and information,” the bench had said.
