Delhi traders observing 48-hr ‘Delhi Bandh’ in protest against sealing

AMN / New Delhi

Delhi traders are observing 48-hour ‘Delhi Trade Bandh’ from Friday in protest against the ongoing sealing drive in the national capital. The traders have demanded that the sealing be immediately stopped and the Government bring an amnesty scheme to protect trade.

Markets in the national capital are closed for 48 hours starting today as trade unions intensify their protest against the municipal corporations for sealing their shops. The traders said they will extend the bandh for a third day if the BJP-ruled civic agencies do not stop the sealing drive.

The Confederation of All India Traders said thousands of shops, big and small, will be closed during the bandh. “Protest marches against sealing would be taken out by businessmen in around 500 markets. The ongoing sealing is very harmful to our economy,” Praveen Khandelwal of the traders’ union said.

The three BJP-ruled municipal corporations say they are sealing business establishments running in residential areas. Over 600 shops across 100 shopping complexes in Delhi have been sealed over the past few weeks.

The BJP, however, accuses the Aam Aadmi Party or AAP of causing the mess by sitting on a decision to designate 351 roads in the city as commercial-use.
