BAIJAYANT JAY PANDA - Loksabha MP

LOKSABHA MP JAY PANDA WILL RETURN HIS SALARY

India faces humongous loss due to wasted Parliament sessions. This MP from Odisha compensates the nation for its loss 

Biju Janta Dal (BJD) MP is in News now a days. He has decided to return his salary for the month. He has decided it because the winter session of parliament couldn’t run properly. Panda said, from past four-five years he returns the salary proportional to time wasted in Parliament.

Panda is elected for Lok Sabha from the Kendrapara constituency in Odisha. Panda is MP from past 16 years. First he was selected for Rajya Sabha in year 2000 and continued till 2009.  After that in he got selected for Lok Sabha in year 2009 and 2016. Panda said, from past 16 years he never interrupted working of Parliament.   

It is worth pondering that for one minute’s preceding in parliament costs around two lakhs fifty Thousand, whereas one hour’s preceding costs one and half crore. Government spends 9 crore for just one day’s proceeding of parliament. Jay Panda said, “Parliament couldn’t work and money got wasted. So, to compensate it, like every year I am offering to return my salary proportional to time wasted in Parliament”. Jay Panda will return 85 percent of his salary and incentives. Of course this is quiet appreciating step.
