NEW DELHI: Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi’s sixth question to Prime Minister Narendra Modi is on the seventh pay commission and its implementation.
“Saatve vetan aayog mein Rs 18, 000 maasik hone ke bawajood fixed aur contract pagaar Rs 5,500 aur Rs 10, 000 kyun? (Despite 7th pay commission recommendations suggesting Rs 18,000 per month as minimum pay, why is the pay for fixed and contract workers at Rs 5,500 and Rs 10,000?)” he wrote on Twitter.
The Congress leader also tweeted a video of an elderly lady speaking about the poor pay scale of teachers.
Rahul has been launching a series of questions at Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the run-up to the assembly elections in Gujarat. On Sunday, he questioned the PM over safety, education and health of women in the state. He alleged that women of Gujarat have no security nor have access to proper education or nutrition in their state.
PM Modi, who’s currently on a two-day visit to his home state Gujarat, launched a scathing attack on the Congress and it’s second-in-command. He accused the Congress of using divisive politics and rigging (organisational) elections.
The Congress leader, who is expected to file nomination for party chief’s position on Monday, has been asking a question on Twitter daily to corner the ruling BJP in the poll-bound Gujarat.
The first phase of assembly elections in Gujarat will be held on December 9, the second phase on December 14. The counting of votes will take place on December 18, along with that of Himachal Pradesh elections results.
