AAP MLA Aman Arora surrenders his TA/DA & perks for Obituary day in Session Would not take TA/DA & other perks citing ‘No Work- No Allowance’-Arora Chandigarh, December 15, 2018

The AAP MLA from Sunam, Aman Arora on Saturday raised the bar for other lawmakers by surrendering his TA/DA & other perks for the 1st day of Punjab Vidhan Sabha Session when no actual work had taken place.
In a letter written to the Speaker of the Punjab Assembly Rana KP Singh, Arora had contended that his conscious does not allow him to take TA/DA & other perks for 13th of December when Session was adjourned within 11 minutes after paying obituaries to the departed souls, and no issue concerning the State or its public was discussed.
Arora further wrote that Capt. Amrinder Singh had recently, while justifying shorter Assembly Sessions had said that it costed State Exchequer a whopping 70 lacs a day to conduct the Assembly proceedings, then how could the CM, his Govt and the Speaker could be so insensitive that they let 70 lacs of public money go down the drain just for 11 minute of Oberuaries, whereas there should have been a sitting , may be after a short interval after that , so as to discuss public issues..
Arora said, in a situation where the State is under a debt of 2.5 lac crores, farmers are committing suicides, no jobs for the youth, industry and trade in shambles, teachers are forced to work on reduced salaries and Mafias running the roost, such kind of wasteful spending totally reflects the insensitive attitude of the Govt towards the State’s fiscal health.
Cautioning the Govt and the Speaker to be more concerned to the States Exchequer in future , he appealed to the Speaker to have a sitting after the Obituary References in the Sessions to come, else he would not take TA/DA & other perks citing ‘No Work- No Allowance’.
