CM Kejriwal demands audience with PM Modi, Rahul

CM Kejriwal demands audience with PM Modi, Rahul

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today threatened that he would go on hunger strike if the issue of the ongoing sealing drive against commercial establishments in the national capital is not resolved by the end of this month. It's not the first time when the Delhi sealing issue has come to public domain as previously also the matter created tensions between the Municipal Corporation of Delhi and the Aam Aadmi Party-led Delhi government.

But, they are suffering due to sealing.

Meeting the traders in Amar Colony against whom police had yesterday allegedly used force while they were protesting against sealing, he demanded that the Centre bring an ordinance to stop the drive. He said that the people earn their money honestly, but their livelihood is threatened when the shops are sealed, so the best option will be to remove the anomalies in the bill and give them a respite.

The sealing drive was undertaken by the municipal corporations of the national capital on the directions of a Supreme Court-appointed committee in December 2017. "This issue needs to be strongly raised in Parliament and pressure should be exerted on the Centre to bring a Bill over it", Kejriwal wrote to Rahul Gandhi. The CM had also announced that he would go on a hunger strike if the issue is not resolved by March 31.

"Isme saare pis rahe hai (everyone is in affected) - traders associated with BJP, Congress as well as AAP".

Mr Maken said the situation has worsened and if the sealing issue was not tackled sensibly in the coming days, the condition in Delhi was bound to get unsafe. CAIT on Saturday said it has sent a "traders' charter" to the government suggesting that it take necessary steps to mitigate traders' problems on account of the sealing drive.

In his letter to Rahul, he urged him to rise above the politics on the issue.

Kejriwal's efforts to reach out to traders have run into rough weather.
