"Both the parties should find an immediate solution to the problem, instead of gaining political mileage out of it", Gandhi tweeted in Hindi.

The BJP today chose to boycott an all-party meet called by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal tomorrow to find a solution to problems being faced by traders because of an ongoing sealing drive in the city, even as the AAP slammed state BJP chief Manoj Tiwari for touring overseas at a time when city traders were facing problems.

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.

The sealing drive - being carried out by the three BJP-led city municipal corporations under the guidance of the Monitoring Committee - has been launched against the business establishments using residential properties for commercial purposes and the ones which have not paid conversion charges.

In a statement, the party said, "the Delhi BJP feels there is no objective of such a meeting as the intentions of the government of Delhi are not clear on the matter".

After the all party-meeting at the CM's residence, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said the government would submit a survey report on 351 roads in the Supreme Court on Monday to ensure that there is no sealing on these roads in the coming days. "Both the AAP and Congress MPs will do that", said Mr. Sisodia. "We should present our points in favour of traders before the committee", Sisodia said. Ajay Maken will, however, attend all party-meeting to be held at the chief minister's residence on Tuesday.

"Stop the drama of allegations and counter-allegations on the issue of sealing in Delhi. Where is BJP Delhi Chief and Member of Parliament?"

In solidarity to Prakash, IAS and Delhi, Andaman and Nicobar Islands Civil Services (DCS) officers have stopped attending meetings with AAP ministers, only maintaining written communication with them.

After the meeting, Maken said the discussion was fruitful.

"We have given a representation to the CM, and will send this to the BJP also, in which we have divided the city into six parts". They want to finish off traders so as to bring in FDI, " he said.

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