The delegation urged the Lt. Governor to order Delhi government for release of pending municipal funds in order to end the prevailing logjam," Delhi state Bharatiya Janata Party chief Satish Upadhyay, who led the delegation, told reporters after the meeting.

The BJP is the ruling party at all the three municipal corporations of East Delhi, North Delhi and South Delhi. Upadhyay also lamented that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government was resorting to cheap gimmicks for political gains.

"Delhi government led by Aam Aadmi Party is free to victimise the civic bodies' leaders but it should release the funds for employees who have not been able to pay the school fees of their wards and buy medicine for the ill," said Upadhyay.

He blamed Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for pushing the national capital towards a state of emergency as the government is becoming a party to law and order problems engulfing the city.

"We can fight it out in elections next year, but CM saheb please be humanitarian. Don't drive Delhi towards an emergency. Please release funds," he cited.
