Nagari MLA Roja was in talks for the Assembly speaker post but somehow she was excluded from the list for Tammineni Sitaram. After the formation of the government, everyone thought that Roja would be greeted with a prominent post.
Finally, her long wait came to an end as has been appointed as Andhra Pradesh Industrial Infrastructure Corporation (APIIC) sometime back and she was given cabinet rank too. Now the YSRCP government has taken a call on her salary as APIIC chairman and this will stun you.
Roja will be getting paid Rs 3.82 Lakh monthly. In that Rs 2 Lakh is her salary and the balance amount is allowances. Vehicle allowance is Rs 60,000, Home Rent Allowance (HRA) is Rs 50,000 and her mobile bill is fixed at Rs 2,000.
