New Delhi: AAP MLAs have been in the news lately for the proposal of 400 per cent hike in salaries.
An AAP MLA made headlines on Wednesday after his children's names were removed from school register due to non-payment of fees.
According to a report in The Indian Express, Amanatullah Khan, AAP MLA from Delhi's Okhla, said he had failed to pay his children’s school fees for the last six months due to his 'abysmal' salary.
Amanatullah Khan says it's embarrassing for him as a parent. Also, he says his wife has been inconsolable due to the incident.
"I could not afford to pay the fees; how can you manage with such an abysmal salary," the AAP MLA said.
According to the AAP MLA, the outstanding amount was already Rs 58,000 for both of his children.
Khan gets Rs 83,500 every month as salary.
Out of Rs 83,500 every month as salary, the AAP MLA says he 'spends' Rs 62,000 in running his office.
Union Home Ministry is yet to give its nod to the bill passed by the Delhi legislative assembly proposing a 400 per cent hike in the salaries of MLAs and ministers.
