The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has chose to skip the all-party meeting called by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to address the sealing drive carried out in Delhi by SDMC. After the remarks about protective helmets by Vijender Gupta, neither Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari nor representatives of his party are likely to attend the meeting at the CM's residence. "It is expected that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will not play political game and also bring a bill, to stop sealing, on the first day of the assembly session on March 16". According to the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT), more than 7L traders from 2,500 associations would participate.

Meanwhile, the BJP has made a decision 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.

"In today's meeting, it was decided that the all-party delegation will meet the monitoring committee to find a solution to the sealing issue", Sisodia said. Despite this, he attracted flak, with AAP Rajya Sabha member Sanjay Singh snapping, "It seems that Maken is a puppet of BJP".

The court held the Delhi Development Authority (DDA), the state government and Centre responsible for the non-implementation of the sealing drive despite being ordered back in 2006. "The remarks displayed the CM's lack of confidence in the all-party meeting", the party said in a letter to Kejriwal on Monday.

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

Following the sealing drive, traders had alleged that they were beaten up by the Delhi Police personnel deployed on the spot.

A Trade Bandh has been implemented in the major market areas of Delhi, as a way to protest the sealing of shops, which is being carried out by the municipal corporations on the direction given by the Supreme court committee.
