Mr. Paswan has told that the money belongs to the people and CA members have no rights to the money as the mandate given by the the people during the election â€“ to write the Constitution within two years, was not done.
Although the move sounds patriotic and with good intention, it is possible that Mr. Paswan wanted to rip some political benefit from the move by returning only a part of the benefits he received for being a CA member.
Anyways, that was good move Mr. Paswan. Unlike others, you have at least returned some of the money.
In the 2008 Constituent Assembly election, the Dalit Janajati Party won 1 seat through the Proportional Representation vote. The party selected Pashwan as its representative in the assembly.
