VK Jain, Witness In Delhi Chief Secretary Assault Case And Delhi CM Kejriwal's Advisor Resigns


"If the Kejriwal government is committed to find a solution of sealing issue, it should immediately hold a special session of Delhi Vidhan Sabha on March 15 and pass a resolution seeking moratorium (on sealing of) all commercial constructions and unauthorized colonies existing as on 31st December, 2017 and forward it to the centre government", Tiwari said in a statement.

He said that another meeting would be called on the issue of sealing if the BJP is willing to attend it.

The meeting was called to discuss the ongoing sealing drive against traders in the national capital. A few days back, Delhi police officials have question retired IAS officer VK Jain about the assault on Delhi Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash allegedly done by Aam Aadmi Party MLAs Prakash Jarwal and Amanatullah Khan.

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.

After the meeting, Mr Maken said it was a fruitful discussion on the issue.
