Ranchi: Cutting across party lines several legislators in Jharkhand Assembly on Friday demanded a pay hike.
"In view of the price rise, there should be a hike in our salaries," ruling JMM MLA Lobin Hembrum said in the state Assembly.
He got instant support from several MLAs across the House with most of the MLAs from the ruling party standing up in support.
Lobin contended that Members of Parliament and other Assemblies had also got a hike recently.
When Speaker CP Singh asked RJD MLA Annapurna Devi about her opinion on it, Devi said she too supported the views of the members.
