"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.
To protest against the ongoing sealing drive by the municipal corporations in the national capital, the traders in Delhi have made a decision to observe a "trade bandh" on Tuesday.
"Subhash Chopra (Ex PCC President & Speaker Delhi Assembly) and Arvinder Lovely to accompany me in a 3-member delegation for all-party meeting on sealing going with a set of solutions, based on our experience, having successfully dealt with the issue in 2006-07". The BJP, for it part, chose to boycott the meeting.
After the meeting, Mr Maken said it was a fruitful discussion on the issue. "The BJP can resolve the issue in a day if they want to".
"Stop the drama of allegations and counter-allegations over sealing in Delhi".
In his letter to Maken specifically, Kejriwal wrote that since the Congress leader has been a minister for Urban Development, he is sure of getting good and practical suggestions on the issue from him. "Their real goal is to introduce FDI in retail and ruin the traders".
A joint forum of the Delhi government employees has demanded action against Kejriwal and Sisodia in connection with the case.
He said the Delhi government had not yet met the monitoring committee since the sealing drive had begun, adding that the chief minister had also agreed to a meeting with the committee. In 2012, the apex court asked the committee to halt the drive.
