BRS MLAs are rushing to the Chief Minister's office to ask for money since the election commission of india is anticipated to announce the assembly elections on october 6. After using up all of their Constituency Development Fund (CDF), MLAs are applying for funding through the SDF, for which the state government has budgeted Rs 10,000 crore.
Despite receiving Rs 5 crore on paper, MLAs really only earn Rs 2 crore since the state government mandated that MLAs spend Rs 3 crore to improve the infrastructure in government schools as part of the "Mana Ooru-Mana Badi" scheme. According to reports, the government is directly taking Rs 3 crore out of CDF funding and giving just Rs 2 crore to MLAs.
Due to the non-payment of bills to contractors, some earlier-launched projects were still pending, leaving MLAs struggling with a lack of funding. Due to infrastructural problems, such as poor roads and inadequate drainage systems, the majority of the villages and towns in assembly seats face high levels of local demand for improvements.
MLAs are under pressure to complete unfinished projects and satisfy new voter expectations as the assembly elections draw closer.
