MCD resolves to seek 6-month stay on sealing

New Delhi: The three BJP-ruled municipal corporations in Delhi(MCD) jointly resolved to file an appeal in the Supreme Court seeking a six-month stay on the ongoing sealing drive to give to traders, even as a chaos marred the proceedings of the House.

The joint session of the three civic bodies North, South and East Delhi municipal corporations had barely started when it was rocked by protests by members.

The BJP councilors also added to the commotion by engaging in a heated exchange with their counterparts, as the House witnessed complete pandemonium.

The members trooped into the Well of the House, holding placards and raising slogans, some stood on their seats.

Police personnel had to be also deployed to restore normalcy after the BJP and councilors confronted each other.

The three mayors Kamaljeet Sehrawat (SDMC), Preety Agarwal (NDMC) and Neema Bhagat (EDMC) temporarily left the House, and only later, after some semblance of order was restored, they came back and resumed the proceedings.

The joint House passed two resolutions, one that seeks a temporary for traders from sealing by making an appeal in the court and the other that urges the Delhi government to take up the matter of Master Plan 2021 with the Centre.

“The joint House of the three municipal corporations resolves that an appeal is made in the Supreme Court seeking a six-month stay on the sealing drive and a request be made to the apex court to direct the monitoring committee to halt the sealing for six months,” the resolution reads.

It said that the services of the Additional Solicitor General of India (ASG) be sought to put forth the side of the corporations before the court.

Civic bodies in north, south and central Delhi have been carrying out sealing drives, which started late last month with action against over 50 shops in Defence Colony Market, at the instance of a Supreme Court-appointed monitoring committee.

The action is being taken against properties for non-payment of conversion charges, or for alleged violation of civic norms such as encroachments or illegal constructions.

The other resolution also seeks notification of 351 roads in various parts of Delhi as of commercial or mixed-land use, by the city government.

The joint session was called to work out a plan together, leaving aside party affiliations, but it instead became a political wrestling ground, as members traded barbs with their BJP counterparts, while Congress leaders attacked both the parties.

There are a total of 272 councilors in Delhi with NDMC and accounting for 104 each while EDMC has 64 members.

Nation is still in gloom. A huge setback for the Forces, for Govt, for India, in general. For Uttarakhand, the loss is very personal. State has always been very proud to give India its first CDS. Those Pahaadi identified with him. Those Pahaad have given so many warriors 💔🇮🇳🙏
