Default democracy in Pakistan

Someone sent these figures to me, and sharing it here;

Salary & Govt. Concessions for a Member of NATIONAL ASSEMBLY (MNA)

Monthly Salary: Rs. 120,000 to 200,000
Expense for Constitution per month: Rs.100,000
Office expenditure per month: Rs.140,000
Traveling concession (Rs. 8 per km): Rs.48,000
(For a visit to ISLAMABAD & return: 6000 km)
Daily BETA during Assembly meets: Rs.500
Charge for 1 class (A/C) in train: Free (For any number of times) (All over PAKISTAN )
Charge for Business Class in flights: Free for 40 trips / year (With wife or P.A.)
Rent for Govt hostel any where: Free
Electricity costs at home: Free up to 50,000 units
Local phone call charge: Free up to 1,70,000 calls.

TOTAL expense for a MNA per year: Rs. 32,000,000
TOTAL expense for 5 years: Rs. 1,60,000,000

For 534 MNA, the expense for 5 years: Rs. 8,54,40,000,000 (more than 900 cores)

And they are elected by THE PEOPLE OF PAKISTAN, by the democratic process of this world, not intruded into the assembly on their own or by any qualification. This is how all our tax money is been swallowed and price hike on our regular commodities.

Think of the great democracy we have in Pakistan.
