Present economic conditions not a deciding factor
10.27. It is in this background that we have given anxious consideration to this problem. In doing so, we have constantly borne in mind the fact that we have adopted the ideal of establishing a new society based on social, economic and political justice in our country and that a democracy like ours is reluctant to allow any section of public servants to claim exaggerated salaries or amenities. We have also taken into account the fact-very distressing indeed-that, at present, we are passing through a very difficult time. But the problem, we are dealing with, is a long-range problem, and we suggest that, in finding proper solution to this problem, the present economic conditions in the country should not be the deciding factor.
