The CAIT, which has been calling out to halt the sealing drive, ever since it began, has said, the recent sealing operations conducted at Amar Colony, Lajpat Nagar, is one such example, where the sealing has been undertaken, by "violating the DMC Act".

In another setback to Delhi's ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), V K Jain, the advisor to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal resigned on Tuesday citing personal reasons, days after he was questioned by the police in connection with the alleged assault on Delhi Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash.

The sealing drive - being carried out by the three BJP-led city municipal corporations under the guidance of the Monitoring Committee - has been launched against the business establishments using residential properties for commercial purposes and the ones which have not paid conversion charges.

Sisodia said another such meeting would be called and BJP would be invited again.

The deputy chief minister said it was decided that both AAP and the Congress would raise the matter in Parliament. "We should present our points in favour of traders before the committee", Sisodia said.

Confirming that the BJP would not attend the all-party meet, its Delhi general secretary Ravinder Gupta said that after a delegation of the saffron party was "misbehaved with" at the CM residence, it is clear that AAP doesn't believe in a political dialogue. "Ajay Maken (Delhi Congress chief) has given some good suggestions for reforms, we will implement them", Sisodia said.

Taking a dig at Tiwari, senior AAP leader Saurabh Bharadwaj tweeted, "Whole Delhi desperately seeking solution for Sealing".

Kejriwal, on Saturday, wrote to chiefs of local units -BJP's Manoj Tiwari and Congress's Maken - inviting them to hold a discussion on the matter.

Earlier in the day, Mr Maken expressed hope that the Government would find a solution to the issue which has affected traders across the city.

Last week, the Delhi police told a court during the investigation that Jain revealed that AAP MLAs Prakash Jarwal and Amanatullah Khan bounded the chief secretary and witnessed them assaulting him at CM's residence. The meeting lasted nearly for an hour and was fruitful, Maken said.

The court held the Delhi Development Authority (DDA), the state government and Centre responsible for the non-implementation of the sealing drive despite being ordered back in 2006. "The government must make a submission properly in the court with conviction", Maken said.
