On March 11, the Chief Minister had written to Delhi Congress and BJP chiefs respectively, inviting them to attend the all-party meeting. "We should present our points in favour of traders before the committee", Sisodia said.
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 Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT), have issued a statement that states, 2, 500 traders associations are going to take part in the portest against the shutting of their shops by the authorities.
The CAIT, however, demanded Singh to press the Centre for enacting a special legislation in the Parliament which could overturn the sealing of commercial entities in residential areas - as ordered by the Supreme Court.More news: Laredo Petroleum (NYSE:LPI) Receives Media Sentiment Rating of 0.19
Reacting to the government's move, Tiwari said, "It is clearly established before the traders and people of Delhi that the Arvind Kejriwal government not only neglected its duty on protecting the traders from sealing but it also complicated the issue to an extent that Centre is also facing difficulties in bringing an end to the sealing crisis". It was during a meeting at the CM's residence. Following their agitation, an interim relief came from the top court which stayed the sealings to review the Delhi Master Plan 2021.
Sisodia said the BJP could resolve the issue "immediately" if it wanted to.
He alleged that through the sealing drive, BJP wanted to pave way for foreign direct investments (FDI) in retail in the national capital. "I wish BJP had also participated in the meeting in the interests of Delhi's traders", Kejriwal later tweeted.More news: Honda X-Blade 160cc Launched At Rs 78500

Ashutosh had also targeted Lt Governor Anil Baijal, calling him an "agent of the BJP" for not acting on a complaint about attack on Delhi minister Imran Hussain and Delhi Dialogue Commission vice-chairman Ashish Khetan, despite being provided evidence. "Because it is not being done now, there is chaos", Maken said. "The government must make a submission properly in the court with conviction", Maken said.
