Here is the grand pay hike scheme in a state where many are struggling to earn a living. As blog reader Andrew I noted: “Amazing, isn’t it? An employee who gets to write his own paycheck. I want that job.”
Think also of the rampant corruption and cronyism in the state. What have these people said or done against the blatant corruption in the state? Do you think they deserve a pay hike?
If previous allowances were not enough to run service centres, why not provide additional allowances for service centres rather than massive across-the-board pay hikes? You could have higher service centre allowances for rural constituencies.
