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

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.

Taking a dig at Tiwari, senior AAP leader Saurabh Bharadwaj tweeted, "Whole Delhi desperately seeking solution for Sealing".

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 sources said on Tuesday that the Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal's advisor VK Jain has resigned from his post mentioning personal reasons and family commitments, days following he was questioned by police in connection with the alleged assault on chief secretary Anshu Prakash.

"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". Sources in the All-India Congress Committee said they will raise the issue in Parliament, which is in session till April 6.

"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.

Sisodia said in the days to come, the sealing drive was likely to intensify and also reach the rural areas.

Sisodia said the BJP could resolve the issue "immediately" if it wanted to."The BJP has the government at the Centre".

After the meeting, Maken said the discussion was fruitful.

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

In solidarity with Prakash, IAS officers as well as Civil Services officers of Delhi and Andaman and Nicobar Islands have not been attending meetings with AAP ministers, and only maintaining written communication with them.

All major markets in Delhi will remain shut today as the consortium of major trade unions in the national capital have called a one-day "trade bandh".

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.

The Monitoring Committee was set up by the Supreme Court in 2006.
