Sealing: Traders protest, down shutters in various market

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Traders protested in various markets across the national capital today as part of a day-long called by an industry body against the ongoing sealing drive in

From Market to Karol Bagh, shopkeepers raised slogans and waved black flags to lodge their protest, under the banner of the Confederation of All Traders (CAIT).

In a market in Old Double Storey area in south Delhi's Lajpat Nagar, where recently 350 shops were sealed, traders have been sitting on protest after that action.

At the instance of a Supreme Court-appointed sealing actions have been taken by civic bodies across for violation of civic norms or Master Plan of 2021.

The drive had begun late December with sealing of major shops and eateries in posh Defence Colony.

The CAIT, which has been calling out to halt the sealing drive, ever since it began, has said, the recent sealing operations conducted at Amar Colony, Lajpat Nagar, is one such example, where the sealing has been undertaken, by "violating the DMC Act".
