Over 150 members of the Punjab Assembly have refused to donate their one-month salary to the Chief Minister Relief Fund for the flood victims. Majority of the MPAs who refused to donate their salary are from the PPP, PML-Q and Forward Bloc. Senior Minister Raja Riaz, Haji Ishaq, Ashraf Sohna, Neelum Jabbar, Rana Tanveer Islam and Farooq Yousaf Gurki are yet to donate their one-month salary to the relief fund. Some MPAs have said their flood-hit constituencies also needed help. The PPP and PML-N MPAs say they are not bound to contribute their one-month salary to the relief fund on the appeal of the chief minister.
