Save traders from sealing drive, Jain writes to Mayors

| | New Delhi

With major markets of the city witnessing a sealing spree on the recommendations of Supreme Court-appointed monitoring committee, Urban Development Minister Satyendar Jain has urged Mayors of three city municipal corporations ruled by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to save traders from a sealing drive, by issuing a pending notification which would bring 351 city roads under the commercial/mixed use category.

In separate letters to the three Mayors, Jain said that this notification was to be issued and the Urban Development Department had met with the Commissioners of the three municipal corporations in this regard, but even after the meeting and even after sending five letters, they did not reply.

“I request you to take personal interest in the matter and ask the municipal commissioner to send the report in top priority so that traders can be saved from the sealing drive,” he said in his letters.  According to the officials of the urban development department of the Delhi Government, the minister has called a meeting with the three municipal commissioner to deal with the situation.
