AAP MP moves Pvt Member's Bill in Rajya Sabha to stop sealing

| | New Delhi

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Rajya Sabha member Sanjay Singh said he submitted a Private Member's Bill on Monday to put an end to the sealing drive in the national Capital. All the three Rajya Sabha members from the AAP addressed a Press conference at party headquarters in which they stressed that the ongoing sealing could be stopped only by the BJP-led Central Government by bringing a Bill in Parliament or through an Ordinance.

“I have moved a Private Member's Bill. Since independence, only 14 Private Member bills have been accepted as far as I know,” said Sanjay Singh. He urged all political parties to come together to pass the bill to end the sealing of shops and businesses operating from residential premises in the national capital. Singh said the sealing drive had caused enormous difficulties for the traders and their families. The MP alleged that traders were being beaten up in the name of sealing.

“The AAP has been saying from the beginning that the sealing can be stopped only by a bill or by an ordinance if Parliament is not in session,” he said.

“Due to the ongoing sealing drive the traders are on the brink of starvation and are on the roads protesting against this,” said Sanjay Singh. “The municipal corporations have collected four thousand crore in name of conversion charges but it has no account of that money,” said Sanjay Singh.

The money collected was to be spend on the development of the markets from which traders have paid conversion charges to BJP led MCD. But they have no account of the money collected,” said Sanjay Singh.
