All-Party Team To Meet Supreme Court Committee On Delhi Sealing Drive

All-Party Team To Meet Supreme Court Committee On Delhi Sealing Drive

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.

Maken said the Delhi government has not met the Monitoring Committee since the sealing drive began and added that Kejriwal has also agreed for a meeting with the parliamentary panel.

Sisodia said another such meeting would be called and BJP would be invited again. Arvind Kejriwal has already written a letter to the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi and Congress Party leader Rahul Gandhi, to bring changes in the ruling so that people, who earn their livelihoods through the shops don't lose their jobs and the situation could even lead to violence in the city.

"It's very sad that BJP did not come for the meeting but does politics on the issue", Sisodia said.

Maken also attacked the BJP for boycotting the meet.

Addressing a press conference after the meeting held at the chief minister's residence, Mr Sisodia said that Mr Maken has assured them Congress MPs would raise the sealing issue in the Parliament along with the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MPs. "I have requested Delhi government to ask the director local of bodies to direct the municipal corporations to inform the public about the reasons for sealing before the sealing is carried out".

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.

He alleged that through the sealing drive, BJP wanted to pave way for foreign direct investments (FDI) in retail in the national capital. "We should present our points in favour of traders before the committee", Sisodia said.

After the meeting, Maken said the discussion was fruitful.

The sealing drive - shutting of illegal establishments - started late past year on the directions of the Supreme Court-appointed monitoring committee.

The court held the Delhi Development Authority (DDA), the state government and Centre responsible for the non-implementation of the sealing drive despite being ordered back in 2006.
