Addressing a press conference after the meeting held at the chief minister's residence in Delhi, Mr Sisodia said Mr Maken had assured them that Congress lawmakers would raise the sealing issue in Parliament along with Aam Aadmi Party lawmakers. "A bill has to be brought in Parliament to remove anomalies in the law and save traders from unemployment", he said. "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".
While Kejriwal "missed" BJP in the meeting, AAP and Congress attacked BJP for missing an opportunity to "speak for the traders".
Reacting to the AAP's government criticism, Tiwari, who is on five-day visit to Mauritius with president Ram Nath Kovind, said, "If the Kejriwal government is committed to find a solution, it should immediately hold a special session of the Delhi assembly on March 15 and pass a resolution seeking moratorium on all commercial constructions and unauthorised colonies existing till December 31 and forward it to the Centre".
The sealings, being conducted under the monitor of a court-appointed committee, discontinued after 2012, when the state government proposed the Delhi Master Plan 2021, which allowed commercial establishments to run simultaneously in residential areas.
The deputy CM was speaking at a media briefing after the meeting at Kejriwal's residence.
In solidarity with Prakash, IAS and Delhi, Andaman and Nicobar Islands Civil Services (DCS) officers have not been attending meetings with AAP ministers, and only maintaining written communication with them.
The sealing drive in the national capital has hit the traders, who have been agitating against it.
"Stop the drama of allegations and counter-allegations on the issue of sealing in Delhi".
"It's very sad that BJP did not come for the meeting but does politics on the issue", Sisodia said.
Later, Kejriwal also tweeted, "Had a v good meeting wid reps of Congress. BJP boycotted". However, he said that the BJP would be invited to be a part of the all-party delegation.
Sisodia also said that the BJP does not want to find a solution to the sealing drive.
After the meeting, Maken said the discussion was fruitful.
The BJP has the government at the Centre. "The government must make a submission properly in the court with conviction", Maken said.
