Referring to a letter written by Leader of the House in North MCD Yogendra Chandolia to Delhi BJP President Satish Upadhayay in which he levelled charges against Mayor Ravinder Gupta, AAP's Delhi unit convenor Dilip Pandey said this was one of the instances of irregularities in the civic body.

He said the party will ask Delhi government to direct the Anti-Corruption Branch to investigate the matter.

Chandolia has accused Gupta of "taking money" in the name of party fund.

"On one hand, there are reports that MCDs are not able to pay salaries to their employees despite Delhi government and the LG paying up the necessary amount and on the other hand, there are reports of corruption. BJP should take immediate action against Ravinder Gupta," Pandey said.

"The matter should be thoroughly investigated. If BJP does not initiate any action against Gupta in next 48 hours, we will ask Delhi government to direct ACB to investigate the matter," Pandey said ahead of MCD bypoll likely to be held next month.
