He said the Delhi government had not yet met the monitoring committee since the sealing drive had begun, adding that the chief minister had also agreed to a meeting with the committee.

Meanwhile, the BJP has chose to boycott the all-party meet called by Kejriwal even as the AAP slammed Tiwari for touring overseas at a time when city traders were facing problems.

"It's very sad that BJP did not come for the meeting but does politics on the issue", Sisodia said. The meeting was attended by representatives of the Congress.

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.


Health Minister Satyendar Jain and Development Minister Gopal Rai were among others who attended the meeting on Tuesday afternoon. Taking to twitter, Gandhi advised both BJP and Congress to "stop the drama of allegations and counter-allegations over sealing in city". "A bill has to be brought in Parliament to remove anomalies in the law and save traders from unemployment", he said.

"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.

Traders also took out protest marches in various markets, including Connaught Place, Chandni Chowk, Sadar Bazar, Chawri Bazar, Kamla Nagar, Karol Bagh and Kashmere Gate.

The Municipal Corporations have undertaken the sealing drive following directions of the Supreme Court appointed committee a year ago. "After this affidavit the Supreme Court expressed its concern over the intentions of Delhi Government and revived its Monitoring Committee to curb the growing menace of unauthorized construction, " he said.
