New Delhi: Following complaints by a section
of traders, Delhi government on Monday asked MCD not to carry out
sealing and demolition in Karol Bagh and some other areas of
the city "indiscriminately".
Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, however, said sealing and
demolition of unauthorised constructions are totally under the
domain of MCD and government has just conveyed its opinion on
the issue to the civic body.
"It is in MCD`s domain. We cannot do it. We have told
them that sealing and demolition should not be
indiscriminate," Dikshit told reporters.
Traders in Karol Bagh and Paharganj had requested the
government to direct MCD not to continue with the sealing and
demolition drive in their areas.
