Mumbai : The state government has decided to increase the local development fund of MLAs in the state. The government has increased the development fund of MLAs in the Assembly and Legislative Council by Rs 1 crore. The decision has been welcomed by all the MLAs as the fund has been increased by Rs 1 crore.
One crore increase in MLA fund
At present, the development fund of the Legislative Council and Legislative Assembly MLAs in the state is Rs. 3 crore. It has been increased by Rs 1 crore to Rs 4 crore. The purpose behind this decision is to enable MLAs to carry out development works in their constituencies at full capacity through increased funding. The increased funds are used exclusively for the repair and construction of public undertakings such as schools, anganwadis, public toilets, cemeteries.
An increase of Rs 1 crore in the month of February
On the other hand, in February this year, the MLAs’ local development fund was increased by Rs 1 crore. The government had said that the decision was taken due to increase in prices of construction and other materials. Finance Minister Ajit Pawar, while presenting the budget for the year 2020-21, had announced an increase in the local development fund. However, due to the Corona epidemic, it was not possible to fund this development. A year later, Ajit Pawar had fulfilled this promise. As per the decision taken in February, MLAs were being given Rs 3 crore for local development.
Will there be development or what were the conditions like?
Meanwhile, allegations are rife that once elected, the people’s representatives do not pay attention to the constituency. Also, many say that Amuk leader did nothing during his tenure as MLA. Currently, the MLAs’ fund has been increased by Rs 1 crore. However, will development work be done with the same capacity from this fund? The public and the future will answer this.
