Major markets to remain shut today to protest against sealing drive

Major markets to remain shut today to protest against sealing drive”

"Not even a single shop owner will open his shop in Delhi-NCR on Tuesday, every corner of the Capital will remain shut", a DNA report quoted general secretary of the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT), Praveen Khandelwal, as saying.

All major wholesale and retail markets of Delhi, including Connaught Place, Chandni Chowk, Karol Bagh, Sadar Bazar, Kashmere Gate, Bhagirath Place, Lajpat Rai Market, Khari Baoli, Naya Bazar, Kamla Nagar, Chawri Bazar, Nai Sarak, Khan Market, South Extension, Greater Kailash, Lajpat Nagar, Amar Colony and Defence Colony, would down their shutters on that day, the CAIT claimed.

CAIT secretary general Praveen Khandelwal said that a "vyaapari panchayat" would also be held in Karol Bagh in which thousands of traders are expected to participate.

The Municipal Corporations have undertaken the sealing drive following directions of the Supreme Court appointed committee previous year. Maken is prepared to attend the meeting and has identified the subjects that he will broach at the meeting, including the non-notification of 351 roads as mixed-use lanes. While Kejriwal previously assured them of all help and even wrote to PM Narendra Modi, he has now called for an all-party meeting in a letter which read that 'there is a need for us to rise above party lines to find a solution to the sealing issue.' He has also requested that only three members of each party attend the meeting 'so that we can come to a fruitful solution'.

The order for the sealing of shops had been put into motion from December 2017.

"Your lack of faith in an all-party meet is also evident from the fact that the Deputy Chief Minister has, at a time when Mr. Tiwari is away on an official foreign trip, chosen to tweet that the trip seems to be motivated by politics". A day after, almost 400 shops were sealed by the SDMC.

The traders' body has also appealed the Arvind Kejriwal-led government in the state to "bring a bill which could stop sealing" on March 16, when the Delhi Assembly would reconvene. "We have paid conversion charges, we have trade licences and GST numbers... they didn't listen to us", Kamal Chawla told Indian Express.

Chawla also alleged that during the sealing drive, additional deputy commissioner of police Amit Sharma slapped one of his employees. "My employee Parvez was slapped by the additional DCP while he was protesting outside the shop".
