New Delhi: Members of Parliament will no longer get food cheaply. The reason for this is that the subsidy given to MPs and others on food in the canteen of Parliament has been stopped. Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla gave this information on Tuesday. Birla did not give any information about the financial aspects related to this, although sources said that with the abolition of the subsidy, the Lok Sabha Secretariat could save Rs 8 crore annually.
The Lok Sabha speaker said during the press conference about the preparations for the budget session that instead of Northern Railway, ITDC will now run the canteen of Parliament. It also said that before the Parliament session starts, all MPs will be requested to conduct a Kovid-19 investigation.
Let us know that the budget session of Parliament is going to start from 29 January. The first phase of the budget session will be from 29 January to 15 February and the second phase from 8 March to 8 April.
