Hitting out at thge BJP for boycotting an all-party meet on the ongoing sealing drive in the city, Delhi deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia on Tuesday said that the delegation will meet a Supreme Court appointed Monitoring Committee to seek a solution to the problems posed by the sealing drive.

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.

Sisodia said another such meeting would be called and BJP would be invited again. "I wish BJP had also participated in the meeting in the interests of Delhi's traders", Kejriwal later tweeted.

"According to the party, Tiwari, who is now on a state visit overseas, had a teleconference discussion with senior Delhi BJP office bearers and trader leaders on the sealing issue".

"BJP wants to make way for FDI (Foreign Direct Investment) through the sealing drive", Sisodia said and added that the drive is being done with the support of BJP.

"There are some issues on which we should not do party politics", he said.

While it's positive that the pay scale will be rebalanced from here on out, at this point it won't do Foy any good. "I think we were the first television series ever to change cast and continue, and we will change cast twice".

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.

Health Minister Satyendar Jain, Development Minister Gopal Rai, AAP leader Sanjay Singh and lawmaker Somnath Bharti were among the others who took part in the talks.

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.

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's advisor V. K. Jain, who was also a witness in the Delhi Chief Secretary (CS) assault case, has resigned from the post citing personal reasons.

Shopkeepers from Amar Colony to Karol Bagh raised slogans and waved black flags to voice their protest under the banner of the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT).

The sealing drive - shutting of illegal establishments - started late past year on the directions of the Supreme Court-appointed monitoring committee.
