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

On February 2 and 3 the traders had shut their shops for two days to mark their protest against the sealing action which began in December 2017

The BJP did not take part in it.

In solidarity with Prakash, IAS and Delhi, Andaman and Nicobar Islands Civil Services (DCS) officers have not been attending meetings with AAP ministers, and only maintaining written communication with them.

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

"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".

Apart from the decision that the AAP and the Congress MPs will raise the issue in Parliament, Mr. Sisodia said that Mr. Maken had given good suggestions, including asking the government to move the Supreme Court and meeting the monitoring committee.

BJP had earlier expressed apprehensions about the meeting, with MLA Vijender Gupta even advising other participants to wear helmets.

Maken came out of the CM's house looking satisfied and said that he had "very fruitful" discussions on the issue and attacked BJP for missing the meeting.

"The BJP can resolve the issue in a day if they want to".

"The BJP has the government at the Centre".

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Keriwal today held an all-party meeting here to find a solution to the issues raised during the ongoing sealing drive in the national capital.

The deputy chief minister said it was decided that both AAP and the Congress would raise the matter in Parliament. "Hope the Government listens", Mr Maken tweeted.

"If the Kejriwal government is committed to find a solution of sealing issue, it should immediately hold a special session of Delhi Vidhan Sabha on March 15 and pass a resolution seeking moratorium (on sealing of) all commercial constructions and unauthorized colonies existing as on 31st December, 2017 and forward it to the centre government", Tiwari said in a statement.

The sealing drive - being carried out by the three BJP-led city municipal corporations under the guidance of the Monitoring Committee - has been launched against the business establishments using residential properties for commercial purposes and the ones which have not paid conversion charges.

The Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT), a consolidated body of over 2,500 trade unions in NCR, issued the bandh call on Monday.
