Delhi Sealing: Traders protest, down shutters in various markets

Delhi Sealing: Traders protest, down shutters in various markets

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has made a decision to skip the all-party meeting called by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to address the sealing drive carried out in Delhi by SDMC.

"Stop the drama of allegations and counter-allegations on the issue of sealing in Delhi. I wish BJP had also participated in the interest of Delhi's traders" (sic).

Reacting to the government's move, Tiwari said, "It is clearly established before the traders and people of Delhi that the Arvind Kejriwal government not only neglected its duty on protecting the traders from sealing but it also complicated the issue to an extent that Centre is also facing difficulties in bringing an end to the sealing crisis".

The all-party meeting ended up being an AAP and Congress meeting, with the BJP boycotting. "We should present our points in favour of traders before the committee", Sisodia said.

Sisodia said another such meeting would be called and BJP would be invited again. Both parties, referring to the BJP and the AAP, should stop playing politics and find a solution to the issue quickly, Mr. Gandhi said.

He alleged that through the sealing drive, the BJP wanted to pave the way for foreign direct investments in retail in the national capital. "Because it is not being done now, there is chaos", Maken said. "The government is likely to submit the matter to SC coming Monday", said Sisodia.

Following the sealing drive, traders had alleged that they were beaten up by the Delhi Police personnel deployed on the spot.

On March 11, the Chief Minister had written to Delhi Congress and BJP chiefs respectively, inviting them to attend the all-party meeting.

"In today's meeting, we have given a presentation to the chief minister and deputy chief minister to make them understand how the ongoing sealing drive, which is being carried out in several areas, is illegal", Maken told reporters after the meeting.

Reacting to the AAP's government criticism, Tiwari, who is on five-day visit to Mauritius with president Ram Nath Kovind, said, "If the Kejriwal government is committed to find a solution, it should immediately hold a special session of the Delhi assembly on March 15 and pass a resolution seeking moratorium on all commercial constructions and unauthorised colonies existing till December 31 and forward it to the Centre".

Municipal Corporations are carrying out the drive under the directions of the Supreme Court-appointed monitoring committee.
