Indian Ministers for Moneycracy?

The salary of the Ministers has been increased @ 200% and it is calculated that a minister will get an average of Rs. 1.30 Lakhs per month. Even then the Ministers are not satisfied as their responsibility towards the nation of having a big population of 1,150,000,000 (1.15 billion) costs more and as they argue they have been undervalued. Considering the population of India, the Ministers claim has a little more logic and justifiability.  But the question is whether the Ministers need be salaried for their responsibilities towards nation or not. The basic grammar of democracy teaches us that they are people’s representative and meant for the service of the people and nation. If so the services are to be reciprocated with honorarium not with salary. The connotation of salary really implies a quantum of work or job that could be measured in scale and on the basis of such scale, a pay scale could be introduced considering the qualification, experience and performances. Are they willing to prove their qualification, experience and performances before raising their tall claims for salary? Even if they are willing to do so, will the current concept of democracy agree to such conceptual violation?
