All-party meet at Kejriwal's residence to discuss sealing drive in Delhi

On a day when thousands of shops across the city were shut to protest against an ongoing sealing drive in the city, AAP and Congress said that an all-party delegation will meet a Supreme Court-appointed Monitoring Committee to find a solution to the drive. VK Jain has resigned from his position after days after he was questioned by Delhi police in relations to the allegations assault with Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash. "I wish BJP had also participated in the meeting in the interests of Delhi's traders", Kejriwal later tweeted.

Kejriwal had yesterday written to Maken and Tiwari, inviting them for the meeting at his residence on Tuesday, saying, "We should rise above politics and come together to find a solution to the problems that have risen due to sealing".

"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. We should present our points in favour of traders before the committee", Sisodia said.

In a statement, the party said, "the Delhi BJP feels there is no objective of such a meeting as the intentions of the government of Delhi are not clear on the matter".

He alleged that through the sealing drive, the BJP wanted to pave the way for foreign direct investments in retail in the national capital. "The government is likely to submit the matter to SC coming Monday", said Sisodia.




Health Minister Satyendar Jain and Development Minister Gopal Rai were among others who attended the meeting on Tuesday afternoon.

A Trade Bandh has been implemented in the major market areas of Delhi, as a way to protest the sealing of shops, which is being carried out by the municipal corporations on the direction given by the Supreme court committee.

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. The meeting lasted nearly for an hour and was fruitful, Maken said.

Delhi Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash was allegedly assaulted by AAP MLAs during a meeting at the chief minister's residence in the evening of February 19.

To protest against the ongoing sealing drive by the municipal corporations in the national capital, the traders in Delhi have chose to observe a "trade bandh" on Tuesday.
