{image-delhi drives_02022008.jpg}Sourse, Feb 2: The sealing drives Delhi towards several violant protest from Delhiites. And which leads to the 'tug of war' between the government and the Court. Since 1996, when the Supreme Court ordered closure of small industries in Delhi's residential areas by December 31, 1999. Six years later in February 2006, the MCD started sealing commercial establishments in residential colonies, only to end the drive in May after the central government introduced a bill suspending sealing.

Government prepared a new master plan for Delhi in Nov 1996, in which it granted mixed land use, accordingly shops on over 2000 roads could function. As there was no mention of sealing shops the list started again on March 2007.
Meanwhile, the Congress lost the municipal election and the BJP emerged triumphant. In August 2007, the MCD demanded another moratorium on sealing, only to be turned down by the Supreme Court. So the MCD sealing was in a slow drive, as was expected in view of the coming Assembly Elections.
