Markets to remain closed today due to protest of sealing drive

Shops closed in protest against the sealing drive in South Extension market in New Delhi on January 19, 2018.

Neighbourhood News Desk/Avi Arya: Markets across the city are likely to remain closed on Tuesday in keeping with the call for a ban made by Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) to protest against the ongoing sealing drive. It was said about 2,000 market associations and seven lakh shopkeepers will participate in the one-day strike.

Traders in popular markets, such as Khan Market, GK 1 and 2, South Extension, Defence Colony, Connaught Place, Karol Bagh etc. said they will not open their shops and participate in protests organised at six venues in the city. Traders planned a mass protest at six places against the sealing drive being carried out by the municipal corporations on the direction of the Supreme Court-appointed monitoring committee. After the protest, CAIT will give a presentation to the Union ministers and lieutenant-governor probably on Wednesday.
