Arvind Kejriwal's advisor quits days after questioning over Delhi chief secy assault

Delhi traders protesting over going sealing drive at Lajpat Nagar in New Delhi

Sisodia said the BJP could resolve the issue "immediately" if it wanted to.

He said the announcement by Delhi Government that it will soon notify the 351 roads indicates that the AAP Government not only neglected its duty of protecting the traders from sealing but it also complicated the issue to an extent that Centre was also facing difficulties in bringing an end to the sealing crisis.

The sealing drive - being carried out by the three BJP-led city municipal corporations under the guidance of the Monitoring Committee - has been launched against the business establishments using residential properties for commercial purposes and the ones which have not paid conversion charges.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Keriwal today held an all-party meeting here to find a solution to the issues raised during the ongoing sealing drive in the national capital.

The BJP has accused the AAP of misleading the people on the sealing issue, saying an ordinance can not be brought in while Parliament is in session. It is an irony of political situation of Delhi that the current irresponsible Government is praising Congress the party originally responsible for the sealing menace, " Mr Tiwari said. Health Minister Satyendar Jain, Development Minister Gopal Rai, AAP leader Sanjay Singh and MLA Somnath Bharti also attended the meeting. "Both the parties should find an immediate solution to the problem, instead of gaining political mileage out of it", Gandhi tweeted in Hindi.
