In his letter to Rahul, Kejriwal said a solution to the problem of sealing needed to be found rising above politics.
In his letter to Rahul Gandhi, the chief minister sought an appointment with him and said sealing of commercial establishments is driving lakhs of people unemployed.
Asking for an appointment with the Prime Minister, the Delhi CM demanded that a Bill must be brought in Parliament rapidly to stop the sealing drive.
"Traders earn their livelihood honestly and pay taxes. If all of them are rendered unemployed (due to sealing) then it may impact law and order situation".
"The proposals of DDA (Delhi Development Authority) for amendment in Master Plan 2021 are very confusing since every proposal contain certain riders and conditions which are hard to follow and as such the basic object of bringing proposals to provide relief to traders from sealing will be highly defeated, according to prominent traders", it said.
"If there is no solution to the sealing drive by March 31, I will sit on hunger strike".
While the AAP blamed the BJP over the ongoing sealing drive, the Delhi CM maintained that the issue wasn't limited to one party, Indian Express reported. He urged the Congress chief to put pressure on the central government to resolve the dispute.
"Isme saare pis rahe hai (everyone is in affected) - traders associated with BJP, Congress as well as AAP. The shutdown had been called by the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT)".
The sealing drive is carried out against business establishments under residential properties for commercial values.
The decision was taken at a meeting convened by the CAIT that was also attended by leaders of more than 250 prominent trade associations of Delhi. The sealing drive was undertaken by the municipal corporations of the national capital on the directions of a Supreme Court-appointed committee in December previous year. Upon witnessing no improvement in the situation of a commercial establishment, CM Arvind Kejriwal has chose to take the matters into his own hands.
