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

14 March, 2018, 02:03 | Author: Regina Silva
  • On February 2 and 3 the traders had shut their shops for two days to mark their protest against the sealing action which began in December 2017

An all-party delegation will meet a Supreme Court-appointed monitoring committee to seek a solution to problems posed by an ongoing sealing drive, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said today, while hitting out the BJP for boycotting a meeting called on the issue by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

"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.

"I wish BJP had also participated in the interest of Delhi's traders", Kejriwal later tweeted, describing it as a very good meeting. "It's sad that the BJP didn't attend the meeting and played politics", said Mr. Sisodia.

Mr Maken also attacked the BJP for boycotting the meet.

"BJP wants to make way for FDI (Foreign Direct Investment) through the sealing drive", Sisodia said and added that the drive is being done with the support of BJP. However, he said that the BJP would be invited to be a part of the all-party delegation.

Later, Delhi Police said that Jain, who was present at the time of the incident, said that he saw two Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs assaulting the Chief Secretary. "A bill has to be brought in Parliament to remove anomalies in the law and save traders from unemployment", he said.

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

Asked about suggestions made by Maken on the matter, Sisodia said the AAP government would consider them.

Jain, the adviser to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, has resigned citing personal reasons and family commitments, days after he was questioned by police in connection with the alleged assault on Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash, sources said on Tuesday.

The Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT), a consolidated body of over 2,500 trade unions in NCR, issued the bandh call on Monday.

The Municipal Corporations have undertaken the sealing drive following directions of the Supreme Court appointed committee previous year.
