Writ filed against budget released for MPs’ fund
A writ was filed at the Supreme Court Thursday against the government’s decision to give Rs 1 million to each Member of Parliament under the MPs’ Development Fund saying the decision could influence the upcoming Constituent Assembly (CA) elections.
Altogether 13 legal practitioners jointly filed the writ at the SC against the decision saying it was taken without formulating necessary laws and basis.
They have demanded that the SC issue an interim verdict to ask the government to withhold the decision.
