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. "Their real goal is to introduce FDI in retail and ruin the traders". "Due to the neglect of Congress Governments and DDA, Delhi has witnessed an unplanned development and expansion which in 2006 resulted in the intervention of the Supreme Court followed by sealing drive".

The BJP did not take part in it. We will go to the monitoring committee to discuss MPD, its interpretation, and sealing.

Jain, the adviser to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, has resigned citing personal reasons and family commitments, days after he was questioned by police in connection with the alleged assault on Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash, sources said on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the protesting traders called the all-party meeting convened by Kejriwal a "political stunt" and they adopted a resolution to demand that the Kejriwal government pass a bill in the assembly to put an end to the drive.

The sealing drive in the national capital has hit the traders, who have been agitating against it.

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

At the Vyapari Panchayat held on Tuesday at Karol Bagh, the CAIT declared to hold a Mega Rally of Delhi Traders against sealing on forthcoming March 28 at Ramlila Ground.

"We have given a representation to the CM, and will send this to the BJP also, in which we have divided the city into six parts".

The then Centre and State Government under Congress Party working by 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.

Mr Sisodia said that BJP could resolve the issue immediately if it wanted to. "The government must make a submission properly in the court with conviction", Maken said.
