New Delhi: AAP councillors, leaders of the opposition in three MCD Houses and nominated Councillors on Saturday marched from the party office to the Civic Center protesting the ongoing sealing drive in different markets in New Delhi.
The march was led by AAP MLAs Jarnail Singh and Anil Bajpai. They announced that the party leaders would march to Parliament on Monday, demanding urgent and concrete action by the Centre to immediately put an end to the "completely unjustified" sealing of markets.
"The AAP is of the clear view that traders of Delhi cannot be denied their right to livelihood due to the utter incompetence and prevalent corruption in the MCDs which is the main reason behind the ongoing sealing," the AAP said in a statement.
The MCDs should immediately withdraw conversion charges which is the sole reason behind the ongoing sealing, it said. The party alleged that the BJP, which has been ruling the MCDs since more than 10 years, has diverted nearly Rs 2,700 crore, collected as conversion charges since 2006
