Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann has announced this. Mann said that instructions have been issued to the officials to take appropriate action in this regard. Mann said that many MLAs lost after being MLA four times. Someone’s pension is four lakhs,
someone is five and a half lakhs, but now only one pension will be available.

Now the pension and family allowances of the former MLAs will be deducted, which will be used in the schemes of public welfare. The Chief Minister said that unemployment is a big issue.

Lal Singh, Rajinder Kaur Bhattal, Sarwan Singh Phillaur get 3 lakh 25 thousand pensions every month in the state.
