Sealing drive: All-party delegation to meet SC panel, says Congress


AAP sources said the coming together of the two parties was to find a solution to the problems faced by traders, who are considered supporters of the BJP generally.

The BJP today chose to boycott an all-party meet called by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal tomorrow to find a solution to problems being faced by traders because of an ongoing sealing drive in the city, even as the AAP slammed state BJP chief Manoj Tiwari for touring overseas at a time when city traders were facing problems.

Tiwari alleged that due to the "neglect" of previous Congress governments and the DDA, Delhi has witnessed an "unplanned" development and expansion which in 2006 resulted in the intervention of the Supreme Court followed by sealing drive. We will go to the monitoring committee to discuss MPD, its interpretation, and sealing.

A total of 1,675 business establishments were sealed across the Delhi from January 23rd till March 9 in the ongoing sealing drive by the BJP led MCD, information released by the corporation said on Tuesday.

Delhi BJP general secretary Ravinder Gupta said the party would not attend the meeting, adding that after the incident at the CMs residence on January 30, where a delegation of saffron party was "misbehaved with", it was proved that the AAP does not believe in a "political dialogue".

The deputy chief minister said it was decided that both AAP and the Congress would raise the matter in Parliament. 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. Over seven lakh traders would be participating in the protest, said the statement issued by CAIT.

Kejriwal, on Saturday, wrote to chiefs of local units -BJP's Manoj Tiwari and Congress's Maken - inviting them to hold a discussion on the matter.

Maken attacked the BJP for boycotting the talks, stressing that parties needed to "collectively find a solution" to the traders' problems.

On 28 March, a traders' rally would be held at Ramlila Maidan here against the sealing drive which, the CAIT said, is in "utter violation" of the Municipal Corporation of Delhi Act, 1957.
