MCD urged Monitoring Commission to defer sealing drive
New Delhi, Oct 28 (UNI) The Municipal Corporation of Delhi today urged the Supreme Court-appointed monitoring committee to defer the proposed sealing drive in the capital from November 1 in view of the volatile law and order situation in the capital.
