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

Hitting out at the BJP at a press conference at the CM's residence, Sisodia said it was unfortunate that the party's representatives did not attend the meeting called to find a solution to the sealing issue.

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. "I wish BJP had also participated in the meeting in the interests of Delhi's traders", Kejriwal later tweeted.

"In today's meeting, it was decided that an all-party delegation will meet the (SC-appointed) monitoring committee to find a solution to the sealing issue", Sisodia said. Even though BJP was also invited to this all-party meeting, it boycotted it.

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

Sisodia said another such meeting would be called and BJP would be invited again. "But the BJP wants to finish off traders by establishing foreign direct investment in the city", he said.

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.

"The government should appoint prominent lawyers as the chief minister has appointed for his personal litigation", BJP said in a letter to Kejriwal.

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. The meeting lasted nearly for an hour and was fruitful, Maken said.

Asked about suggestions made by Maken on the matter, Sisodia said the AAP government would consider them.

Last week, the Delhi police told a court during the investigation that Jain revealed that AAP MLAs Prakash Jarwal and Amanatullah Khan bounded the chief secretary and witnessed them assaulting him at CM's residence.

To protest against the ongoing sealing drive by the municipal corporations in the national capital, the traders in Delhi have chose to observe a "trade bandh" on Tuesday. This after the Delhi Chief Minister sent out invites to members of all parties - including Congress'Ajay Maken and BJP's Manoj Tiwari.

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