Nation Calling for Resolution for Winds of Change - "Ten Commandments" for MPs/MLAs

*Some Resolutions and Reforms considered essential for our Parliamentarians/ MLAs for the New Year ie 2012,*

Each Indian must know the overall pulse and feelings of all  the Indian Citizens. Doesn't every one of you think and agree that it is now time to persuade our Parliamentarians to live like majority of Indian Citizens?

These "Ten Commandments" should not only be practiced by our representatives but strictly implemented to ensure a real sense of economy and duty, towards India, at the highest level.

1.Parliamentarians/MLAs not to be paid  for Non attendance and also when Parliament/Assembly transacts no business due to stalling by members.

2.Parliamentarians/MLAs should receive salary only while in office and not when out of office.

3.Parliamentarians/MLAs should purchase their own retirement plans, just as all Indians do. Life long pension for them be discontinued from prospective effect.

4.Parliamentarians/MLAs should no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Their pay should be linked to the CPI or 3% annually, whichever is lower or on the basis of a commission submitting report once in ten years.

5.Parliamentarians/MLAs should no more be governed by their current health care system but should participate in the same health care system as the Indian people.

6.Parliamentarians/MLAs should  equally abide by all laws they impose on the Indian people.

7.All contracts made with Parliamentarians/MLAs should be held void effective  from 1/1/12. The Indian people did not make this contract with them. They made all these contracts for themselves. 

8.Parliamentarians/MLAs failing to abide by their oath of office or misusing their allotted funds should be liable for specific penalties and punishments by special  tribunals.

9.It is absolutely unjustifiable to provide highly subsidised food to the Parliamentarians/MLAs, whose canteens should charge them at the same rates as normal citizens of India pay elsewhere.

10.Serving in Parliament / Assemblies is an honour and not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so they should all  also serve their term(s)  in true spirit and then go home to be back at their own work.

Amplified from an idea expressed by a devoted Citizen of India.

    increase the pay of all MP and MLA to 10 lakhs per month - fixed. (yes i recommend 10 lakhs per month flat per month)
