Sealing issue: Kejriwal holds all-party meeting to find solution

Sealing Drive

Teaming up against the BJP, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the Congress on Tuesday said they will come together in Parliament to raise the issue of Delhi's ongoing sealing drive and ask the Centre to come up with a solution.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has chose to skip the all-party meeting called by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to address the sealing drive carried out in Delhi by SDMC.

"The then Centre and state government under the Congress working on its past strategy to suppress the issue, brought out an under developed Master Plan-2021 which though stopped the sealing at that time but soon complicated the situation to the extent that in 2017 Supreme Court actively re-intervened", he said in the statement.

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

"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".

"There are some issues on which we should not do party politics", he said.

Replying to the tweet, Kejriwal wrote, "I urge u to kindly raise sealing issue strongly in current session of Parliament and force BJP to take all steps necessary to stop sealing n open sealed shops".

"The government should appoint prominent lawyers as the chief minister has appointed for his personal litigation", BJP said in a letter to Kejriwal. AICC sources said Mr. Gandhi was briefed about the matter by Mr. Maken after the all-party meeting at Kejriwal's residence.

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

The protest is being organised to oppose the sealing drive unleashed by the municipal corporations on direction of the Supreme Court-appointed monitoring committee.

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. "Because it is not being done now, there is chaos", Maken said.

Delhi traders have called for a complete shutdown on Tuesday, March 13, in protest against the ongoing sealing drive in the national capital.

The sealing drive is being carried out on the order of the Supreme Court over "misuse of premises".
