“Now, Nitish Kumar wants to take away funds allocated to MLAs and MLCs of the state in the name of the pandemic. I want to make a suggestion that you should also include MPs’ funds in the state. There are 39 MPs of the NDA representing Bihar in the parliament.
“Besides, the fund generated from legislators in a tune of Rs 600 crore should be spent in the health structure in the constituencies of MLAs or MLCs. If we allow this fund to merge with the Health Department budget, the chances of corruption is very high. Hence, the MLAs or MLCs should be the signing authority of funds before it is expended in purchasing of medical equipments, life-saving drugs, oxygen concentrators, oxygen cylinders, ventilators, beds at isolation and quarantine centres for the particular areas,” Tejashwi Yadav said.
The Nitish Kumar government aiming to generate Rs 600 crore through reducing lagislators’s fund of Rs 2 crore allocated to every MLA and MLC. A notification in this regard was issued three days ago.
