The Confederation of All India Traders strongly condemn the silence being kept by political leadership of all shades on brutal sealing of shops which is uprooting the trade in Delhi. It is highly regretted that so far no steps have been taken by either Government to began talks with the traders who have been made scapegoat in this burning issue. The brunt of the failure of the Govt is being faced by the Government.
It is further unfortunate that both Govts and MCD are tight lipped over gross violation of MCD Act by MCD official himself as no notice is being served on traders. It is more unfortunate that even orders of Supreme Court for giving 48 hours notice is also being violated and no politician has courage to raise the voice.
If Government does not want trade to be conducted and developed in Delhi, the traders are prepared to shut down the shutters of the shops and willing to handover keys to Govt. The manner in which sealing is conducted and traders are humiliated is beyond tolerance. If things are not taken seriously by both the Govenmentd then once again Delhi can go on agitation as it was done in 2006 and 2007.
