Delhi Sealing: Traders protest, down shutters in various markets

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

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.

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".

The sealings, being conducted under the monitor of a court-appointed committee, discontinued after 2012, when the state government proposed the Delhi Master Plan 2021, which allowed commercial establishments to run simultaneously in residential areas.

Sisodia said another such meeting would be called and BJP would be invited again.

Confirming that the BJP would not attend the all-party meet, its Delhi general secretary Ravinder Gupta said that after a delegation of the saffron party was "misbehaved with" at the CM residence, it is clear that AAP doesn't believe in a political dialogue. "Both the AAP and Congress MPs will do that", said Mr. Sisodia. Over seven lakh traders would be participating in the protest, said the statement issued by CAIT. "Ajay Maken (Delhi Congress chief) has given some good suggestions for reforms, we will implement them", Sisodia said.

In solidarity with Prakash, IAS officers as well as Civil Services officers of Delhi and Andaman and Nicobar Islands have not been attending meetings with AAP ministers, and only maintaining written communication with them. "We have given a representation to CM and AAP".

Protesting traders took out protest march in different markets of Delhi and held demonstration at about 100 different places across Delhi demanding immediate stoppage of sealing and de-sealing of properties already sealed.
