    We wondered that's why those crezy Matric failed or attempted puc or ba r ambitioning to become MLA n when he do becomes he builds mansion palace within six months; and start again compaining for the next election with that left over amount....
    Is that much amount worth of his standard not to speak of his responsibility to people; his creative finding of developmental projects in his constituency ... it's too much.
    Let him be paid excluding other allowances Rs 30000/ pm enough.
    And paid or sanctioned adequately according to the nature of projects he presents, and more.
