Delhi CM meets Traders on sealing issue

Written by: Staff

New Delhi, Apr 4 (UNI) Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit today assured the traders that she would seriously consider any measure required to resolve the stalemate that had arisen due to the Apex court order for sealing of commercial units in residential areas.

The Chief Minister, who invited a traders' delegation at her residence for talks on the issue, said she understood the pain of the traders and the common people of Delhi in this hour of crisis and would take all possible steps to clear the confusion over the issue.

The traders delegation, led by the general secretary of the confederation of All India Traders, Praveen Khandelwal and comprising senior leaders of Delhi, submitted a memorandum to the Chief Minister invoking her immediate attention to the rapidly worsening situation in Delhi.

Stating that if immediate steps were not taken, Delhi would become one of the worst cities in the country, the traders said the promulgation of an Ordinance to halt the sealing of shops was the only choice left with the government if it really wanted to end the stalemate and panic that had been created in Delhi by the sealing operation.

The Chief Minister invited the traders for a second round of talks tomorrow.

Mr Khandelwal said that from Thursday, the traders would launch a signature campaign among MPs, MLAs and corporators wherein they will be asked whether or not they are with the traders.
