In Rajasthan, CM Ashok Gehlot presented paperless budget this time. During this period, a soft copy of the budget was made available to all the 196 MLAs along with Tablet. The price of this tablet is being said as 40 thousand rupees.
The tableau was also given to the MLAs in a briffcase. 40 thousand is being given the price of the tablette given to the MLAs. The Chief Minister gave the gift of forty thousand to each MLA by closing it in the briefcase of the budget speech. This gift has been given to the MLAs of all the parties without any discrimination. But neither the government nor the MLA is considering it as a gift.
This time the budget was presented digitally.
Actually due to Corona, this time the budget was presented digitally. Budget speech was digital this time instead of printed copy. Therefore, digital copy of budget speech was also given to the MLAs in the tablette. By the way, there is already a provision for the legislators that they can spend 90 thousand to buy a laptop or tablet. Most of the MLAs also bought them.The rebellion and withdrawal of the Pilot faction has increased the importance of the legislators.
The MLAs have been given briskcases even after the budget. The government, irrespective of any party, has always taken care of the convenience of the legislators. After the rebellion and withdrawal of the Sachin Pilot group last year, the stature of MLAs has increased. Even when Vasundhara Raje was CM, it has been a tradition to give gifts, show films and give dinner to MLAs after the end of the session. The way of changing the power may have been changed but the tradition of taking care of the MLAs continues.
