In a letter addressed to various staff unions, BJP Delhi Pradesh President Satish Upadhyay said his party "understands the problems faced by the staff and has all sympathy for them".
    
"But, in the larger interest of Delhi, it is important that we ensure no epidemic strikes the city", he said.
    
Upadhyay said BJP Mayors and leaders are trying to work out a solution but due to 'political vengeance', the Delhi government is not ready to release municipal funds despite orders from the High Court.
   
Reacting to comments of Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia about municipal bodies, Upadhyay said ministers of the Arvind Kejriwal-led government should have this basic knowledge that in municipal bodies, all expenses are incurred by government officials, while Mayors and councillors have no financial power.
