87 Shops Sealed In North Delhi
Over 80 shops were on January 18 sealed in parts of north Delhi by the area's civic body for alleged violation of municipal norms. The action was taken on the instruction of a Supreme Court-appointed monitoring committee.
According to the North Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC), 33 shops were sealed in the Sadar Paharganj Zone, 34 in the City Zone, 18 in the Karol Bagh Zone and two in the Rohini Zone. The action was taken as these markets had allegedly violated the provisions of Delhi Master Plan-2021 or had done illegal construction or had not paid conversion charges. The monitoring committee recently held a meeting and more markets are likely to be targeted in coming days.
The Bharatiya Janata Party-led NDMC House on January 18 also saw a war of words with Leader of Opposition (AAP) Rakesh Kumar alleging that Mayor Preety Agarwal did not allow him to speak on the issue of sealing.
