Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has written letters to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress President Rahul Gandhi seeking a law against the sealing drive in Delhi.


In the letter to the Prime Minister, Kejriwal has written that the sealing is being undertaken because of some irregularities in the law.

He wrote that the centre was supposed to tackle such irregularities, however, it did not mend these on time, and now the people have to face the consequence. 

Kejriwal added that the sealing drive was affecting the people who pay taxes and contribute to the development of the country.

He said to secure the earning of thousands of such people the parliament needs to pass an urgent bill. He added that unemployment at such a high rate will also affect law and order.

He said in his letter that these shopkeepers are at the extreme end of reaching poverty, one shop in the area supports the life of several people.

The chief minister also requested for opening the shops that have already been shut down after sealing.

In his letter to the Congress President, the AAP chief said that the opposition should debate on the sealing drive issue in Parliament.
