IMPHAL, Feb 25: The All Manipur Village Defence Force (VDF) Welfare Association has demanded the members of the State Legislative Assembly to discuss their demand for an increase in their honorarium by Rs 1000 during the ongoing Manipur Legislative Assembly budget session.
Speaking to media person, spokesperson of the association Shahid Nawaz Khan said the Chief Minister has already assured them to increase their honorarium in 2015.
