BHOPAL: The Madhya Pradesh unit of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) today opposed the BJP government's move to raise the salary and alllowances of MLAs in the state.

"When AAP government had raised the salary of its MLAs in Delhi, BJP staged a massive protest against it and today it is doing the same thing in Madhya Pradesh," AAP national spokesperson and MP Coordinator Alok Agarawal said in a statement.

"It is highly shameful on the part of state government to raise the salaries of legislators especially when it is reeling under heavy debt, farmers were not getting compensation and it is a big example of the government's anti-people act," he added.

MLAs in Madhya Pradesh are set to become richer with the government giving a nod to hike their salary and allowance.

This decision was taken today at the state cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan.
