Patna: Bihar Panchayati Raj Minister Bhim
Singh on Wednesday told the state Assembly that there was no proposal
for providing salary to the representatives of Panchayati Raj
institutions on the pattern of MPs and MLAs in the state.

Replying to a short-notice question of RJD MLA Bhai
Vuirendra in the House, Singh said Panchayati Raj institutions
are "autonomous" and there was no proposal for providing
salary and allowances to the representatives of Panchayati Raj
institutions on the pattern of MPs and MLAs.

"Moreover, the state government is paying the
representatives of the Panchayati Raj institutions in Bihar a
fixed allowance per month," Singh said.

Singh accepted the fact that there are altogether 2.6
lakh elected representatives in 38 districts in Bihar.
