Now that the Green party leadership pledged them big money to develop their respective electorates, the party’s backbenchers are said to be in a buoyant mood these days.


They seem to feel that they have got a bonanza. After all, Rs. 5,000 million on offer is not chicken feed!


Meanwhile, a few Green backbenchers have expressed their hankering for power-sharing as monitoring members in addition to the funds to be dished out to them in a generous measure.


However, a section of backbenchers has expressed their displeasure at this move. Their argument is that they may lose even the precious funds they been promised as a result of pressing another demand.
