Bengaluru, Sept 23: The Karnataka assembly on Tuesday passed a bill to reduce salaries and allowances of members of the state legislature by 30 per cent for a year to augment financial resources required to fight the Covid-19 pandemic.

The state expects to save somewhere between Rs 16 crore to Rs 18 crore by this exercise, Law and Parliamentary Affairs Minister J C Madhuswamy said, while moving the 'Karnataka Legislature Salaries, Pensions and Allowances and Certain Other Law (Amendment) Ordinance, 2020' to effect the changes. "In the wake of Covid-19, we discussed with leaders of our party and also the opposition that as a gesture, ministers, MLAs and MLCs, heads of authorities, the Speaker and Deputy Speaker should agree to a 30 per cent salary cut," Madhuswamy told the Assembly.

Appreciating the move, Arkalgud JD(S) MLA A T Ramaswamy demanded to know how the government approved hike in salaries of judicial officers during the pandemic when the state was facing a financial crunch. "During this coronavirus period, the state is facing financial problems. It is our duty to rush aid for relief work. However, should this law be applicable to all or only to the Karnataka Legislature?" Ramaswamy asked the Law Minister.

He alleged that judicial officers in Karnataka had on their own, hiked their salaries and then the government gave its nod. "Is this appropriate? Has the government lost its strength? Without seeking your consent, without the approval of the legislature, if they hike their salaries and you give your nod later, are they above law or the Constitution? You need to clarify on this," Ramaswamy said. To this, Madhuswamy said he was not in a position to immediately give an answer as he did not have the facts. He however, assured Ramaswamy that he would gather the information and provide it to him.

Bengaluru, Sept 24: Movement of goods and passengers will be affected in parts of the state on Friday as several farmers’ groups have called for blocking of all the state and national highways to protest against the state and central governments’ move to amend key legislations, including Land Reforms Act and the APMC Act.

Under the banner of Raita, Dalita, Karmikara Aikya Horata several organisations have called for blocking all the state and national highways on Friday, to coincide with the countrywide bandh by the Bharatiya Kisan Union and others.

Farmers in Karnataka had deferred the decision on the strike as they expected the state government to listen to their demands. As the government tabled the bill to amend APMC Act on Wednesday afternoon, a call has been given for a state bandh on Monday.

On Friday, protests will take place across the districts under the banner of Aikya Horata even as the Kodihalli Chandrashekhar-led association has decided to limit itself to the large protest at Mysore Bank circle.

Karnataka Rajya Raita Sangha and Hasiru Sene state president Badagalpura Nagendra said Mysuru, Mandya, Chikkaballapur, Kolar, Mangaluru, Hubballi and Dhawad are some of the districts where the protest and road blockage is expected to be total. “Some parts of Bengaluru will be affected. Our main focus is on the Monday bandh. Tomorrow, we are protesting in support of a nationwide bandh,” he said.

Some districts may not see major impacts as one of the associations has stayed away. However, a member of the Aikya forum said the Monday bandh will be total.

Bus operations to be normal

Officials said there will be no change in operations of buses, including city, suburban and inter-city services, either in Bengaluru and outside. Decisions to cancel services will be taken based on the prevailing situation.

While officials in BMTC said normal operations will continue on Friday, KSRTC officials said officials at its divisions have been put on alert. “We have issued directions to all divisional controllers to ensure road deviations and smooth operation of services. They have been told to stay in touch with police authorities,” an official said.
