Govt to move SC over sealing issue

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. "A bill has to be brought in Parliament to remove anomalies in the law and save traders from unemployment", he said.

On a day city traders observed a bandh, AAP and Congress reconciled their political differences to find a way to tide over the crisis resulting from the ongoing sealing drive.

The BJP did not take part in it.

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 sealings, being conducted under the monitor of a court-appointed committee, discontinued after 2012, when the state government proposed the Delhi Master Plan 2021, which allowed commercial establishments to run simultaneously in residential areas. It was during a meeting at the CM's residence.

In solidarity to Prakash, IAS and Delhi, Andaman and Nicobar Islands Civil Services (DCS) officers have stopped attending meetings with AAP ministers, only maintaining written communication with them.

He alleged that through the sealing drive, BJP wanted to pave way for foreign direct investments (FDI) in retail in the national capital.

Health minister Satyendar Jain, development minister Gopal Rai, AAP Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh and MLA Somnath Bharti were among the others who took part in the talks.

On the issue of 351 roads, which have been pending notification as commercial or mixed-land use for over 10 years, Mr. Sisodia said the government would go to the Supreme Court next week to seek permission for the notification.

At the Vyapari Panchayat held on Tuesday at Karol Bagh, the CAIT declared to hold a Mega Rally of Delhi Traders against sealing on forthcoming March 28 at Ramlila Ground.

Later, Kejriwal also tweeted, "Had a v good meeting wid reps of Congress. BJP boycotted".

Mr Sisodia said that BJP could resolve the issue immediately if it wanted to.

The BJP has the government at the Centre. Over seven lakh traders would be participating in the protest, said the statement issued by CAIT.

Mr Maken said that everyone should join hands to stop the sealing drive and all the facts should be properly presented before the Supreme Court.
