400% Hike In MLA Salaries – The Impact It Will Have On Indian Politics

With the recent hike in salaries of Delhi MLAs we are on our way to make politics a full-time profession and with a pinch of salt a full-time business too. Now that the salaries of the Delhi MLAs are 400 hundred percent more than what it was earlier, even more sedate kinds of mothers in Delhi will sing lullaby to their toddlers about the privileges of being a legislator in Delhi. They will highlight that apart from badgering women, being corrupt, bully, opportunist, forgerer and having several FIRs against them, they can also get a great salary and pension for being such a powerful man.

 

The pay hike removes the uncertainty from the equation which people consider when deciding about politics as a career. Today only people with ‘do or die’ kind of mindset come to politics. Prepared to create riots, battle on behalf of their party leaders, fill the coffers of the party by hook or crook, take law in their own hands for every small reason or on the behest of their leaders etc. But their rewards were never so delineated. Now politics has to offer something legitimate, something which a person with his heart and values at the right place would feel like taking.  Now, at least everyone willing to make a career in politics has a defined goal to achieve, a destination to arrive.

 

Now the dedication to join politics to lead the country to better times will be the same which civil services candidates have while preparing for the civil services exam.
