Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress president Rahul Gandhi, seeking time to meet them for resolving the issue of sealing of shops in the national capital.

"I assure you from my side that my party and government will do whatever is needed to put an end to sealing and to reopen shops that have already been sealed", wrote the Delhi Chief Minister. The responsibility to remove these loopholes is of the central government, which did not act in the timeliness manner.

This prompted the Delhi chief minister to threaten launching a hunger strike and urge parties across the political spectrum to "unite and pressure the Centre" to bring an "ordinance" to stop the ongoing sealing drive.

The sealing is being undertaken by the municipal corporations on the directions of a Supreme Court-appointed committee. "If all of them are rendered unemployed (due to sealing) then it may have a huge impact law and order situation", he wrote in his letter to the PM.

Requests for comment from Beckham's camp have not been returned as of Saturday afternoon, ESPN reported. The next week in Minnesota, he lost his cool while being shut down by corner Xavier Rhodes.


The sealing drive by Delhi Municipal Corporation has disrupted the general lives of traders. "It will be more appropriate if the central government suspends the sealing, by bringing a law in the Parliament, for at least six months, and during this period after having a detailed and thoughtful study, the proposals to amend the Master Plan should be drafted to give relief from sealing", he said in the statement. There is only one solution now: "a law", he said.

However, an industry body has termed Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's threat to go on hunger strike a "political drama". Each shop is means of livelihood for many people. Kejriwal's point was that the focus must be on removing some clauses from the law that have caused some of the commercial establishments to be sealed up.

Meanwhile, preparations for a Delhi trade bandh on 13 March are on in full swing and traders are gearing up for an unprecedented show of strength.

All major wholesale and retail markets of Delhi, including Connaught Place, Chandni Chowk, Karol Bagh, Sadar Bazar, Kashmere Gate, Bhagirath Place, Lajpat Rai Market, Khari Baoli, Naya Bazar, Kamla Nagar, Chawri Bazar, Nai Sarak, Khan Market, South Extension, Greater Kailash, Lajpat Nagar, Amar Colony and Defence Colony, would down their shutters on that day, the CAIT claimed.
