Confirming that the BJP would not attend the all-party meet, its Delhi general secretary Ravinder Gupta said that after a delegation of the saffron party was "misbehaved with" at the CM residence, it is clear that AAP doesn't believe in a political dialogue. The BJP had also been invited to the meeting on Tuesday, but it stayed away.
"There are some issues on which we should not do party politics", he said. The then Centre and State Government under Congress Party working by on its past strategy to suppress the issue, brought out an under developed Master Plan-2021 which though stopped the sealing at that time but soon complicated the situation to the extent that in 2017 Supreme Court actively re-intervened.

Maken said the Delhi government has not met the Monitoring Committee since the sealing drive began and added that Kejriwal has also agreed for a meeting with the parliamentary panel. 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. The AAP has hit out at the BJP on the issue, saying that only the Centre can resolve the issue by either bringing in a bill or promulgating an ordinance.
"Not even a single shop owner will open his shop in Delhi-NCR on Tuesday, every corner of the Capital will remain shut", said Praveen Khandelwal, general secretary, Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT).

Health Minister Satyendar Jain and Development Minister Gopal Rai were among others who attended the meeting on Tuesday afternoon. "I assure you from my side that my party and government will do whatever is needed to put an end to sealing and to reopen shops that have already been sealed", wrote the Delhi Chief Minister. The traders are suffering a lot due to the collusion and fake fight between the BJP and the AAP. 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.
More than seven lakh commercial establishments and more than 2500 markets across Delhi participated in Delhi Trade Bandh.
