Tamil Nadu Chief Minister E Palaniswami has tabled an amendment in the state assembly to pave way for almost doubling the salary of the state's 235 legislators - from Rs. 55,000 to 1.05 lakh a month. The government is pushing for the implementation of the proposal - announced in July last year - days after refusing a salary hike demanded by striking bus workers, citing losses incurred by the state transport corporations. The strike by the transport workers is on its seventh day.
