In a statement, the party said, "the Delhi BJP feels there is no objective of such a meeting as the intentions of the government of Delhi are not clear on the matter".

Delhi BJP general secretary Ravinder Gupta said the party would not attend the meeting, adding that after the incident at the CMs residence on January 30, where a delegation of saffron party was "misbehaved with", it was proved that the AAP does not believe in a "political dialogue".

The sources said on Tuesday that the Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal's advisor VK Jain has resigned from his post mentioning personal reasons and family commitments, days following he was questioned by police in connection with the alleged assault on chief secretary Anshu Prakash. "A bill has to be brought in Parliament to remove anomalies in the law and save traders from unemployment", he said. "The BJP can resolve the issue in a day if they want to".

He alleged that through the sealing drive, the BJP wanted to pave the way for foreign direct investments in retail in the national capital.

The Municipal Corporations have undertaken the sealing drive following directions of the Supreme Court appointed committee past year.

"The government should appoint prominent lawyers as the chief minister has appointed for his personal litigation", BJP said in a letter to Kejriwal.

Trey Burton to the Bears
It turns out his destination is Chicago, where Burton caught his first career touchdown pass from Carson Wentz in 2016. Signing with the Bears should allow Burton to get more consistent playing time than he did in Philadelphia.

"In today's meeting, it was decided that an all-party delegation will meet the (SC-appointed) monitoring committee to find a solution to the sealing issue", Sisodia said. "Because it is not being done now, there is chaos", Maken said.

Last week, the Delhi police told a court during the investigation that Jain revealed that AAP MLAs Prakash Jarwal and Amanatullah Khan bounded the chief secretary and witnessed them assaulting him at CM's residence.

Replying to Mr. Gandhi's tweet, Mr. Kejriwal said: "I urge u to kindly raise sealing issue strongly in current session of Parliament and force BJP to take all steps necessary to stop sealing n open sealed shops".

The sealing drive was undertaken by the municipal corporations of the national capital on the directions of a Supreme Court-appointed committee in December previous year. "Ajay Maken (Delhi Congress chief) has given some good suggestions for reforms, we will implement them", Sisodia said.

The sealing drive is being carried out on the order of the Supreme Court over "misuse of premises".
