Sealing drive: 1675 business establishments in Delhi sealed till Mar 9

Addressing a press conference after the meeting held at the chief minister's residence in Delhi, Mr Sisodia said Mr Maken had assured them that Congress lawmakers would raise the sealing issue in Parliament along with Aam Aadmi Party lawmakers.

During the talks, AAP and Congress agreed to raise their voice in Parliament through their MPs against the drive being carried out since last December by municipal corporations in the city.

The BJP did not take part in it. "After this affidavit the Supreme Court expressed its concern over the intentions of Delhi Government and revived its Monitoring Committee to curb the growing menace of unauthorized construction, " he said. "I assure you from my side that my party and government will do whatever is needed to put an end to sealing and to reopen shops that have already been sealed", wrote the Delhi Chief Minister.

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. More than half a dozen policemen were deployed additionally apart from the regular security deployment outside the CM's residence for the meeting. "We appeal to the Chief Minister to immediately meet the Monitoring Committee Members and urge them to stop the sealing being done without even serving notice, " he added.

Notably, a "bandh" is being observed on Tuesday by the traders in the national capital in protest against the sealing drive.

Over seven lakh traders would be participating in the protest, said the statement issued by CAIT.

"We have given a representation to the CM, and will send this to the BJP also, in which we have divided the city into six parts".
