Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

With regards,

Self Serving Servants ?

Legislators are supposed to be " Servants of the citizens "

They are - but with a difference 

In case of our domestic servants or employees in our offices , we get a chance to settle their salaries, through " bargaining / negotiations "

And deduct salary for absenteeism

And sack them for non-performance

In case of our MLAs ( and our MPs as well ) , they too settle their salaries through " Collective Bargaining "

Not with the Speaker , but collectively among themselves !

You may even want to call it , " Colluding / Cooperating Bargaining  " !

The only element of " Competition " is with the salaries of MLAs of other States !

Look at the basic Monthly salaries ( excluding perks / benefits / allowances ) of our MLAs :

*      Assam...........................................Rs   60,000
*      Jharkhand / Haryana / HP............... Rs   30,000
*      Punjab..........................................Rs   25,000
*      Karnataka..................................... Rs   20,000
*      Rajasthan..................................... Rs   15,000
*      Delhi........................................... Rs   12,000
*      Uttarakhand................................. Rs   11,500
*      Chhatisgarh..................................Rs    10,000
*      Kerala..........................................Rs      1000

Now , MLAs of Delhi discovered their relative ranking in this " Pecking Order " and decided ( unanimously , of course ! ) that they must raise their salary to Rs 50,000 , in order to " Jump the Queue " and occupy position # 2 

As to what will happen next , your guess is as good as mine !

Irrespective of their political affiliations , all MLAs belong to ,

"  A  Mutual  Admiration  Society  "  !

The only way we can put a stop to this " Self Service Circus " is by :

*   Writing a " Job Description "  for our MLAs and MPs

*   Introducing " Objective Setting and Targets " 

*   Followed by  " Quarterly Online Performance  Appraisals " by voters

*   Enacting an electoral reform called " Right to Recall "
