Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday said his government will move the Supreme Court seeking a temporary ban on the sealing drive as a meeting between Delhi BJP leaders and the chief minister on the issue could not materialise and both the sides ended blaming each other.
A BJP delegation led by Delhi unit president Manoj Tiwari walked out of the chief minister’s residence ahead of the meeting, alleging that the AAP government wanted to divert the issue.
“I am sad that this meeting could not take place. We will go to the Supreme Court for a temporary ban on sealing,” said Arvind Kejriwal after the meeting with the BJP leader.
Tiwari said the BJP delegation walked out of the meeting since Kejriwal had converted it into a public rally instead of a meeting. “We sensed their dangerous mood and felt that he was not interested in finding a solution to the problem,” he charged.
AAP workers also entered into a scuffle with BJP workers, Gupta charged and added that he has filed a police complaint against AAP MLAs and others over the incident.
Kejriwal said he will visit markets hit by the sealing drive later in the day to meet the affected traders.
