Health minister Satyendar Jain, development minister Gopal Rai, AAP Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh and MLA Somnath Bharti were among the others who took part in the talks.

Ashutosh had also targeted Lt Governor Anil Baijal, calling him an "agent of the BJP" for not acting on a complaint about attack on Delhi minister Imran Hussain and Delhi Dialogue Commission vice-chairman Ashish Khetan, despite being provided evidence.

The sealing drive - being carried out by the three BJP-led city municipal corporations under the guidance of the Monitoring Committee - has been launched against the business establishments using residential properties for commercial purposes and the ones which have not paid conversion charges.

"In today's meeting, it was decided that the all-party delegation will meet the Monitoring Committee to find a solution to the sealing issue", Mr Sisodia said. "The different parties will put forward their views", Sisodia said. The Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT), have issued a statement that states, 2, 500 traders associations are going to take part in the portest against the shutting of their shops by the authorities.

In solidarity to Prakash, IAS and Delhi, Andaman and Nicobar Islands Civil Services (DCS) officers have stopped attending meetings with AAP ministers, only maintaining written communication with them.


Taking on the BJP for not attending the meeting, Sisodia said that the ruling party at Centre was not serious and doing politics over the sealing. They did not want to participate in today's meeting.

The deputy CM was speaking at a media briefing after the meeting at Kejriwal's residence. "The discussion for traders was necessary and if needed, we will again call a meeting and appeal to the BJP to attend it", Sisodia said. "We have given a representation to CM and AAP".

Later, Kejriwal also tweeted, "Had a v good meeting wid reps of Congress. BJP boycotted". "The reason behind sealing is anomalies in the law". He also advised Kejriwal to move court.

At the Vyapari Panchayat held on Tuesday at Karol Bagh, the CAIT declared to hold a Mega Rally of Delhi Traders against sealing on forthcoming March 28 at Ramlila Ground. "Because it is not being done now, there is chaos", Maken said. "The government is likely to submit the matter to SC coming Monday", said Sisodia.
