Delhi mayors meet CM Kejriwal, seek release of municipal funds
The mayors of the three BJP-led civic bodies on Monday met chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, seeking release of municipal funds “due to them” from the government as per the recommendations of the third and fourth Delhi finance commissions.
North Delhi mayor Adesh Gupta, South Delhi mayor Narender Chawla and East Delhi mayor Bipin Bihari Singh were accompanied by respective heads of standing committees and leaders of the three municipal houses.
“We met chief minister Arvind Kejriwal at his office to apprise him of the financial crisis being faced by the three corporations, which is badly affecting smooth functioning. He listened to our woes and sought 7-10 days time to discuss the matter with officials,” Gupta said after the meeting.
