RWAs lend support to traders on sealing issue
New Delhi, Aug 31 (UNI) Even as the Municipal Corporation of Delhi is to begun from tomorrow the sealing of certain categories of commercial properties for whom exemption granted under the Delhi laws (Special Provisions) Act, 2006 has been withdrawn recently, the RWAs, coming out in support of traders, have demanded the Centre to stop any sealing action to save lakhs of people of Delhi from "a great disaster".
At a 'RWA Conference' held in the capital last evening, RWAs from various parts of Delhi, taking up cudgels for the traders, said,''without making any alternate arrangements, marching orders for traders for closing their shops is not only a fit case of gross injustice but also inhuman.'' Participating in the meet, where members of several leading trade associations of Delhi were also present, the RWA leaders made it clear that they were never against the traders of Delhi, a press release by the Confederation of All India Traders said.
''We all, put together, could not even think that such a disaster by the thoughtless action of the Government would strike the trading community residing in residential colonies for the last many years. The truth is that the government has misunderstood and misinterpreted our problems which were primarily road management, parking water and elelctricity supply. While these problems continue to remain unaddressed, the Government has instead taken action against the traders and misled the people at large,''the RWA leaders said.
