New Delhi, March 13 (IANS) An all-party delegation will meet a Supreme Court-appointed monitoring committee to find a solution to the ongoing sealing drive, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken said here on Tuesday.

Sisodia and Maken made separate statements after a meeting with Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and other Delhi ministers at Kejriwal’s residence.

Addressing the media separately, Sisodia and Maken also attacked the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for not taking part in the meeting, despite an invitation from Kejriwal.

“It’s very sad that BJP did not come for the meeting but does politics on the issue,” Sisodia said.

He said that another meeting would be called on the issue of sealing if the BJP is willing to attend it. “The BJP can resolve the issue in a day if they want to.”

Sisodia also said that the BJP does not want to find a solution to the sealing drive.

“BJP wants to make way for FDI (Foreign Direct Investment) through the sealing drive,” Sisodia said and added that the drive is being done with the support of BJP.

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Congress MPs will also raise the issue in Parliament, both leaders said.

Maken said the Delhi government has not yet met the monitoring committee since the sealing drive began and added that Kejriwal has also agreed for a meeting with the committee.

Health Minister Satyendar Jain and Development Minister Gopal Rai were among others attending the meeting.
