Haryana Chief Minister Nayab Singh Saini is entitled to full salary as Chief Minister even without being elected as an MLA. Assembly Member Salary Act will not apply to him for receiving salary as Chief Minister. Not only this, Naib Singh Saini will also be able to receive salary and allowances as an MP till the completion of the tenure of the current 17th Lok Sabha. Recently, the BJP leadership had handed over the responsibility of Chief Minister to Naib Singh Saini while he was an MP. Former Chief Minister Manohar Lal has resigned and vacated the Karnal assembly seat for him, for which by-election will be held on May 25 and Saini will contest the assembly elections from here. During this period, as Chief Minister, Naib Singh Saini will get allowances along with salary.
