AAP MPs too promised the same.

"I wish BJP had also participated in the interest of Delhis traders", Kejriwal later tweeted, describing it as a very good meeting. The BJP, for it part, chose to boycott the meeting. We must rise above partisan politics to resolve the sealing row.

Hitting out at the BJP at a press conference at the CMs residence, Sisodia said it was unfortunate that the partys representatives did not attend the meeting called to find a solution to the sealing issue.

He said that another meeting would be called on the issue of sealing if the BJP is willing to attend it. Mr Tiwari who is on a state visit overseas on Tuesday had a teleconference discussion with senior Delhi BJP Office bearers and traders on the sealing issue.

"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.

The trading community is traditionally seen as a constituency of the BJP, and the attempt by the AAP is to portray the BJP-which rules the three municipal corporations that are carrying out the sealing drive on court orders, and which is in power at the Centre-as being responsible for the action, and hence as being "anti-trader".

Commenting over the sealing row, Madan said that while the small traders in the national capital continue to suffer, there is politics being played on their concern.

On a day when thousands of shops across the city were shut to protest against an ongoing sealing drive in the city, AAP and Congress said that an all-party delegation will meet a Supreme Court-appointed Monitoring Committee to find a solution to the drive. From AAP, among those who were present included AAP's Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh and MLA Somnath Bharti.

Asked about suggestions made by Maken on the matter, Sisodia said the AAP government would consider them.

The sealing drive is being carried out by a Supreme Court-appointed Monitoring Committee against business establishments using residential properties for commercial purposes.

He also said in the coming days, the situation could worsen if the drive was extended to unauthorised colonies and villages in the national capital. The AAP criticised BJP chief Manoj Tiwari, who was overseas, for choosing to be in a foreign locale when traders in the city were suffering because of the sealing action.
