The sealing drive is being carried out by a Supreme Court-appointed Monitoring Committee against business establishments using residential properties for commercial purposes.

Hitting out at the BJP at a press conference at the CMs residence, Sisodia said it was unfortunate that the partys representatives did not attend the meeting called to find a solution to the sealing issue. "A bill has to be brought in Parliament to remove anomalies in the law and save traders from unemployment", he said.

"Nobody wants to solve our problems, we are being used as a tool to play politics, had it been otherwise, the situation could have been different", he said. However, No leader from the BJP attended the meeting.

"In today's meeting, it was decided that the all-party delegation will meet the monitoring committee to find a solution to the sealing issue", Mr Sisodia said.


The aim of the meeting will be to come up with a solution for problems created by the ongoing sealing drive.

Apart from senior Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders including Manish Sisodia, Sanjay Singh and Gopal Rai, the meeting was also attended by Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee (DPCC) chief Ajay Maken and his party colleague Arvinder Singh Lovely.

The traders are deeply agitated because of conducting sealing in utter violation of statutory provisions of The Municipal Corporation of Delhi Act, 1957.

He said the announcement by Delhi Government that it will soon notify the 351 roads indicates that the AAP Government not only neglected its duty of protecting the traders from sealing but it also complicated the issue to an extent that Centre was also facing difficulties in bringing an end to the sealing crisis. The AAP criticised BJP chief Manoj Tiwari, who was overseas, for choosing to be in a foreign locale when traders in the city were suffering because of the sealing action. Among the markets that are expected to remain shut are Chandni Chowk, Connaught Place, Lajpat Nagar, Amar Colony, Khan Market, South Extension, Greater Kailash, Karol Bagh, Sadar Bazaar, Kamla Nagar, Ashok Vihar, Vikas Marg, Preet Vihar, Model Town, Azadpur and Kalkaji. "Due to the neglect of Congress Governments and DDA, Delhi has witnessed an unplanned development and expansion which in 2006 resulted in the intervention of the Supreme Court followed by sealing drive".
