Mazari , PA secretariat defend increase in MPAs salaries

Punjab Assembly secretariat says the Punjab Public Representation's Law (Amendment) Bill-2019 bill passed after completing all legal process in 21 days

LAHORE- (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News- 14th March, 2019) Punjab Assembly Deputy Speaker Dost Muhammad Mazari and PA official secretariat rushed to justify the massive increase in salaries of MPAs hours after criticism by Prime Minister Imran Khan on the raise.

Mazari declared the increase a wonderful step and PA secretariat issued an official statement and stated the bill passed after completion of due process.

“It is a wonderful step to increase Punjab MPAs’ salary,” he said while responding to journalists at Punjab Assembly.

Prime Minister, earlier, tweeted: "I am extremely disappointed by the decision of Punjab Assembly to raise pays and privileges of MPAs, ministers and especially CM.

"

"Once prosperity returns to Pakistan such a love could be justified, but now, when we do not have resources to provide basic amenities to all our people, this is untenable,"

Meanwhile, Punjab Assembly has clarified that the bill sought raise in MPAs salaries was passed after completing all legal process in 21 days.

“The PA passed the Punjab Public Representation's Law (Amendment) Bill-2019 after completing all legal process in 21 days,” stated PA secretariat on Thursday.

The government spokesman Fawad Ch also raised voice against multiple raise in the salaries of MPAs.
