New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party government’s decision to hike the salaries of Delhi MLAs and ministers by a whopping 400 per cent has drawn flak from various quarters with some questioning the apparent “hypocrisy” of the fledgling outfit that claims to represent the interest of the common man.

The Member of Legislative Assembly of National Capital Territory of Delhi (Salaries, Allowances, Pensions, etc) (Amendment Bill) tabled in Delhi Assembly on Thursday proposes the hike from the present Rs 88,000 to over Rs 2 lakh per month – a 400 per cent increase.

This includes all claimed allowances. The amendment bill for ministers proposes an increase from Rs 70,000 to Rs 2.75 lakh per month.

‘Delhi MLAs’ began trending on Twitter after people took to social media to express their ‘shock and disappointment’ about the salary hike.

Some even reminded Kejriwal of his 2012 tweet wherein he had slammed political parties for increasing salaries “in just five minutes”.

Here are the top 10 tweets on the salary hike in this regard:

People living in Delhi can now avail 30 more services at their doorstep, including adding members in ration card, paying the motor vehicle tax and getting a DTC pass, taking the total number of such services to 70. The second phase of the doorstep delivery of public services, the official launch of which is yet to take place, has been rolled out.

Residents can dial 1076 and get the service by paying Rs 50 extra, an official from Delhi’s Administrative Reforms told IANS. The new services include booking a tour package through Delhi Tourism and Transportation Development Corp.

In September 2018, the Delhi government had launched the doorstep delivery of 40 public services to make things easy for the common man. In the first phase, people got certificates of marriage, caste, domicile, income, births and deaths among others at their doors.

“Once the second phase is on track, steps to start the third phase will be initiated,” the official said. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has plans to have at least 100 services delivered at people’s doorsteps, the official said.

Aam Aadmi Party leader Atishi told IANS: “The plan initially was to take things online but we realised that people find it more easy to call a number and get the services instead of doing things online.” The tenure of the Kejriwal government will end on February 2020. (IANS)
