Sealing: AAP, Congress to meet SC panel for amicable solution

Postado Março 14, 2018

In another setback to Delhi's ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), V K Jain, the advisor to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal resigned on Tuesday citing personal reasons, days after he was questioned by the police in connection with the alleged assault on Delhi Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash.

Sisodia said another such meeting would be called and BJP would be invited again.

The CAIT, however, demanded Singh to press the Centre for enacting a special legislation in the Parliament which could overturn the sealing of commercial entities in residential areas - as ordered by the Supreme Court. "Due to BJP-AAP collusion and fake fights, traders are facing a lot of difficulties", the Congress president said in a tweet.

Health minister Satyendar Jain, development minister Gopal Rai, AAP leader Sanjay Singh, and MLA Somnath Bharti were among the others who took part in the talks. It was during a meeting at the CM's residence. He said that the Delhi government had not met the Monitoring Committee since the sealing drive began, adding that the chief minister had also agreed to a meeting with the committee. "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".

Hitting out at the BJP, Mr. Sisodia said: "They don't want to find a solution. Ajay Maken (Delhi Congress chief) has given some good suggestions for reforms, we will implement them", Sisodia said.

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 then Centre and state government under the Congress working 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", he said in the statement.

Ashutosh had also targeted Lt Governor Anil Baijal, calling him an "agent of the BJP" for not acting on a complaint about attack on Delhi minister Imran Hussain and Delhi Dialogue Commission vice-chairman Ashish Khetan, despite being provided evidence. "Solutions are there in the existing law".
