Advisor to Delhi CM who witnessed alleged assault on Chief Secretary resigns


Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday accused the BJP and the AAP of "collusion" on the ongoing "sealing drive" issue and asked both the parties to stop blaming each other and find an immediate solution to the problem.

"While AAP's national convenor and the chief minister of Delhi is working hard to provide traders in Delhi with relief from the sealing drive, and has moved above politics to invite the Congress and the BJP for an all-party meeting on the issue, Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari has gone out of the country, leaving the traders to deal with the problem", said AAP leader Saurabh Bharadwaj.

Meanwhile, the protesting traders called the all-party meeting convened by Kejriwal a "political stunt" and they adopted a resolution to demand that the Kejriwal government pass a bill in the assembly to put an end to the drive.

He said in the name of an All Party meeting on sealing issue, the two faces of the same coin - Congress and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) - on Tuesday sat together and praised each other's efforts.

Kejriwal was responding to a tweet by his party's Rajya Sabha MP, Sushil Gupta, who wrote, " The future of those who work with hundreds of traders in Delhi is also on the stake, so today CM Arvind Kejriwal has called an all-party, in which the Congress came, but BJP did not attend the meeting. what does BJP want from traders?
