New Delhi, April 16: The Supreme Court on Monday dismissed a plea challenging the constitutional validity of the salaries, allowances and pensions given to the former Members of Parliament. 

A bench of justices J. Chelameswar and Sanjay Kishan Kaul said that it would not interfere in the issue.

The court was ruling on a plea filed by NGO, Lok Prahari demanding to scrap amendments made by Parliament to the Salary, Allowances and Pension of Members of Parliament Act, 1954.

The organisation was appealing against a verdict of Allahabad High Court dismissing a challenge to the constitutional validity of laws granting pension and other perks to former MP’s.
