All-Party Team To Meet Supreme Court Committee On Delhi Sealing Drive

On February 2 and 3 the traders had shut their shops for two days to mark their protest against the sealing action which began in December 2017

Both leaders said that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Congress MPs will also raise the issue in Parliament.

Later in the day, Congress President Rahul Gandhi attacked both AAP and BJP over the sealing drive.

While Kejriwal "missed" BJP in the meeting, AAP and Congress attacked BJP for missing an opportunity to "speak for the traders".

The CAIT, however, demanded Singh to press the Centre for enacting a special legislation in the Parliament which could overturn the sealing of commercial entities in residential areas - as ordered by the Supreme Court. The protest is being organised to oppose the sealing drive unleashed by the municipal corporations on direction of the Supreme Court-appointed monitoring committee.

It is an irony of political situation of Delhi that the current irresponsible Government is praising Congress the party originally responsible for the sealing menace, " Mr Tiwari said. More than half a dozen policemen were deployed additionally apart from the regular security deployment outside the CM's residence for the meeting.

Advisor to Delhi's Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, VK Jain has resigned from his post citing personal reasons.

Sisodia also said that the BJP does not want to find a solution to the sealing drive.


Notably, a "bandh" is being observed on Tuesday by the traders in the national capital in protest against the sealing drive.

"Mr Sisodia said the BJP could resolve the issue immediately if it wanted to".

Later, Kejriwal also tweeted, "Had a v good meeting wid reps of Congress. BJP boycotted".

At the Vyapari Panchayat held on Tuesday at Karol Bagh, the CAIT declared to hold a Mega Rally of Delhi Traders against sealing on forthcoming March 28 at Ramlila Ground. However, he said that the BJP would be invited to be a part of the all-party delegation.

The court held the Delhi Development Authority (DDA), the state government and Centre responsible for the non-implementation of the sealing drive despite being ordered back in 2006.

"According to the party, Tiwari, who is now on a state visit overseas, had a teleconference discussion with senior Delhi BJP office bearers and trader leaders on the sealing issue".

Mr Maken said that everyone should join hands to stop the sealing drive and all the facts should be properly presented before the Supreme Court.
