TRADERS TO STAGE MEGA RALLY AGAINST SEALING ON 28 MARCH AT RAMLILA GROUND
DELHI TRADE BANDH ON 28 MARCH
While intensifying their agitation against ongoing sealing in Delhi, the traders of Delhi will observe a Delhi Trade Bandh on 28th March and will hold a Mega Rally at Ramlila Ground at Delhi. The Rally will be jointly organised by All Delhi Traders, Vyapari & Workers Association and Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT).
Mr. Praveen Khandelwal informed that nearly 3000 trade associations from across Delhi shall be participating in the Bandh and the Rally. The Traders are demanding the Central Govt to bring a Bill in current session of the Parliament to stop the sealing or an Ordinance whereas on the other hand Delhi Chief Minister should pass a Bill in current Assembly session for moratorium on sealing and forward the same to Central Government for its approval. The traders also demanded that the Government should bring an Amnesty Scheme declaring status quo on “As is Where is Basis” as on 31st December,2017. On the other hand the shops which have been sealed should be de-sealed and Delhi Government should immediately notify 351 Roads.
Mr. Praveen Goel & Mr. Vinod Patel informed that traders will take out Rallies in different parts of Delhi on 26th March to muster support for the Rally and also to ensure closure of Delhi. Meetings and Conferences will be held in various markets of Delhi from tomorrow and decisions will be taken by trade bodies for Delhi Trade Bandh & participation in the Rally. Several Rally Jagran Rath will be on the roads in different parts of Delhi messaging about the Rally & Bandh. The traders will leave no stone unturned in making the Rally a great success.
Mr. Khandelwal said that when 1500 unauthorised colonies can be regularised with one stroke why not an Amnesty Scheme or a Moratorium Bill on sealing is brought by the Government. At a time when next Master Plan of Delhi is scheduled to be enforced from 2021 preparations of which have already been started by DDA, it is appropriate that status quo should be maintained and all focus should be devolved on making the next Master Plan a foolproof document.
