AAP minister asks BJP mayors to save Delhi traders from sealing drive

New Delhi: Urban Development Minister Satyendar Jain on Thursday urged Mayors of three city municipal corporations 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.

A Delhi government official told IANS that the minister has also called a meeting of the three commissioners on Friday.
