CAIT urges Reddy, Maken, Dikshit to halt demolitions
New Delhi, May 15 (UNI) The Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) has urged Union Urban Development Minister Jaipal Reddy, Minister of State for Urban Development Ajay Maken and Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit to stop the demolition drive in the capital which could 'risk contempt of Parliament'.
In its memorandum, the traders' body has drawn their attention to The Delhi Laws (Special Provision) Bill 2006 passed by the Lok Sabha to say that the demolition drive could risk contempt of Parliament.
The traders have also called for an amendment to the Bill so that connection of water and electricity should be restored, according to a release of the Traders' body.
Significantly, the CAIT has mooted moratorium for one year for the traders to hold deliberations over the matter.
The memorandum, according to the release, includes a demand for constitution of zonal committees in 15 zones.
The central element of illegality has, however, been sought to be solved by the traders calling for evolution of means to regularise all kinds of business establishments enjoying such status on 31 December, 2005.
