Kejriwal advisor VK Jain resigns

Trade Bandh in Delhi to Oppose Sealing Drive All Major Markets Remain Shut

Traders in Delhi protesting against Centre and state government on Monday

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. "Due to BJP-AAP collusion and fake fights, traders are facing a lot of difficulties", the Congress president said in a tweet. We will go to the monitoring committee to discuss MPD, its interpretation, and sealing.

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.

"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. It was during a meeting at the CM'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".

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.

Taking on the BJP for not attending the meeting, Sisodia said that the ruling party at Centre was not serious and doing politics over the sealing.

He alleged that through the sealing drive, BJP wanted to pave way for foreign direct investments (FDI) in retail in the national capital.

Health Minister Satyendar Jain and Development Minister Gopal Rai were among others who attended the meeting on Tuesday afternoon. It will be sent to BJP also.

Even though BJP was also invited to this all-party meeting, it boycotted it.

The Congress leader said the Delhi government's view had not been appropriately presented before the court.

Earlier in the day, Mr Maken expressed hope that the Government would find a solution to the issue which has affected traders across the city. "The government must make a submission properly in the court with conviction", Maken said.
