Delhi Sealing drive: Aggreived traders protest, down shutters again

New Delhi, March 13: Traders stage protest against sealing in Delhi. A 'bandh' has been called by the traders of the city, today, over the issue of sealing. Above is the visual from Kashmiri Gate.

Traders protested in various markets across the national capital today as part of a day-long bandh called by an industry body against the ongoing sealing drive in Delhi.

From Amar Colony Market to Karol Bagh, shopkeepers raised slogans and waved black flags to lodge their protest, under the banner of the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT).

In a market in Old Double Storey area in south Delhi's Lajpat Nagar, where recently 350 shops were sealed, traders have been sitting on protest after that action.

At the instance of a Supreme Court-appointed Monitoring Committee sealing actions have been taken by civic bodies across Delhi for violation of civic norms or Master Plan of Delhi 2021.

The drive had begun late December with sealing of major shops and eateries in posh Defence Colony.

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"
