Reddy says no sealing from Wed

New Delhi: The Government and the Supreme Court Monitoring Committee are making contradictory noises and the municipal corporation is still undecided whether they will start sealing from Wedneday.

"We do not have any information because there is no area left where sealing is likely to take place. There will not be any sealing,'' says Union Urban Development Minister Jaipal Reddy.

Reddy was responding to the SC Monitoring Committee's directions to the Municipal Corporation of Delhi to begin sealing commercial establishments on 185 notified roads which did not file affidavits.

A few hours later, the SC monitoring commitee repeated its stand yet again. Despite the Government's reluctance at allowing sealing operations to begin, the SC moniteering commitee reiterated its stand that sealing should begin in the Capital from Wednesday.

With the Supreme Court deadline for traders to file affadavits already over and the Delhi masterplan 2021 not meeting its original deadline of January 31, there is confusion on the ground about who will be spared and who will face the MCD sealing squads.
