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

After the all party-meeting at the CM's residence, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said the government would submit a survey report on 351 roads in the Supreme Court on Monday to ensure that there is no sealing on these roads in the coming days.

The Monitoring Committee was set up by the Supreme Court in 2006.

Reacting to the AAP's government criticism, Tiwari, who is on five-day visit to Mauritius with president Ram Nath Kovind, said, "If the Kejriwal government is committed to find a solution, it should immediately hold a special session of the Delhi assembly on March 15 and pass a resolution seeking moratorium on all commercial constructions and unauthorised colonies existing till December 31 and forward it to the Centre".

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 deputy CM was speaking at a media briefing after the meeting at Kejriwal's residence. "I have requested Delhi government to ask the director local of bodies to direct the municipal corporations to inform the public about the reasons for sealing before the sealing is carried out".

Tillerson also stressed the need to increase the volume of trade between the US and Nigeria which he said stood at nine billion dollars.

The commercial activities in the national capital came to a standstill on Tuesday with a day long "Delhi Trade Bandh" call given by the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) against arbitrary sealing of business establishments here.

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

Advisor to Delhi's Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, VK Jain has resigned from his post citing personal reasons.

Later, Kejriwal also tweeted, "Had a v good meeting wid reps of Congress. BJP boycotted. The discussion for traders was necessary and if needed, we will again call a meeting and appeal to the BJP to attend it", Sisodia said. However, he said that the BJP would be invited to be a part of the all-party delegation.

The then Centre and State Government under Congress Party working by on its past strategy to suppress the issue, brought out an under developed Master Plan-2021 which though stopped the sealing at that time but soon complicated the situation to the extent that in 2017 Supreme Court actively re-intervened.
