Later, Delhi Police said that Jain, who was present at the time of the incident, said that he saw two Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs assaulting the Chief Secretary. "Due to BJP-AAP collusion and fake fights, traders are facing a lot of difficulties", the Congress president said in a tweet.

On a day city traders observed a bandh, AAP and Congress reconciled their political differences to find a way to tide over the crisis resulting from the ongoing sealing drive. BJP did not take part in it. We will go to the monitoring committee to discuss MPD, its interpretation, and sealing.

A total of 1,675 business establishments were sealed across the Delhi from January 23rd till March 9 in the ongoing sealing drive by the BJP led MCD, information released by the corporation said on Tuesday.

Sisodia said the government would create opportunities for both parties to apprise the monitoring committee about their views on the sealing. More than half a dozen policemen were deployed additionally apart from the regular security deployment outside the CM's residence for the meeting. Arvind Kejriwal has already written a letter to the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi and Congress Party leader Rahul Gandhi, to bring changes in the ruling so that people, who earn their livelihoods through the shops don't lose their jobs and the situation could even lead to violence in the city. Over seven lakh traders would be participating in the protest, said the statement issued by CAIT.

Ashutosh had also targeted Lt Governor Anil Baijal, calling him an "agent of the BJP" for not acting on a complaint about attack on Delhi minister Imran Hussain and Delhi Dialogue Commission vice-chairman Ashish Khetan, despite being provided evidence.

"Mr Sisodia said the BJP could resolve the issue immediately if it wanted to".

At the Vyapari Panchayat held on Tuesday at Karol Bagh, the CAIT declared to hold a Mega Rally of Delhi Traders against sealing on forthcoming March 28 at Ramlila Ground.

He alleged that through the sealing drive, BJP wanted to pave way for foreign direct investments (FDI) in retail in the national capital. It will be sent to BJP also. "Because it is not being done now, there is chaos", Maken said.

The court held the Delhi Development Authority (DDA), the state government and Centre responsible for the non-implementation of the sealing drive despite being ordered back in 2006. "The government must make a submission properly in the court with conviction", Maken said.
