New Delhi: On Tuesday, Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken asked the AAP and the BJP to end their fake fight over the ongoing sealing drive and suggested that they should instead seek relief from the Supreme Court for traders who have been hit by the move. The comments came after a meeting, to find a solution to the issue, between the AAP and BJP leaders at Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal’s residence ended in hostility and without any result. The BJP walked out of the meeting alleging that AAP leaders and workers misbehaved with the BJP members. The saffron party also filed a police complaint.

Mr Maken said that both the parties have failed miserably to provide relief to the traders. “The affected traders are approaching the Supreme Court and its monitoring committee for respite from sealing, while the AAP and the BJP, who should do this, are fighting each other,” said Mr Maken during a visit to meet traders.

 

He tweeted, “AAP+BJP MLAs physically fighting each other... To convince their supporters that they are fighting for them!”

He wondered if the BJP government at the Centre and the AAP government in Delhi can protect the traders from the sealing drive as was successfully done by the Congress government in 2006-07.

Last week, Mr Maken discussed the issue of sealing in a detailed presentation and suggested ways to tackle it. Citing Congress’ experience, he said, “In 2006, when the sword of sealing was hanging over traders, the then Congress-led Centre approached the court and enacted a law and made amendments in the Master Plan of Delhi 2021.”
