However, Delhi Congress president Ajay Maken will attend the all party-meeting to be held at the chief ministers residence tomorrow.

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".

"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.

He also urged the political parties to come together and pass the bill to end the sealing drive that has been creating a panic among traders in Delhi.

Both leaders said that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Congress MPs will also raise the issue in Parliament.

In solidarity with Prakash, IAS officers as well as Civil Services officers of Delhi and Andaman and Nicobar Islands have not been attending meetings with AAP ministers, and only maintaining written communication with them.

The Municipal Corporations have undertaken the sealing drive following directions of the Supreme Court appointed committee a year ago.

Following their agitation, an interim relief came from the top court which stayed the sealings to review the Delhi Master Plan 2021.

Meanwhile, traders protested in various markets across the city today as part of a day-long bandh called by an industry body against the drive.

"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).

Among major markets will which will remain non-functional, include Karol Bagh, Sadar Bazaar, Kamla Nagar, Ashok Vihar, Vikas Marg, Preet Vihar, Model Town, Azadpur, Kalkaji, Chandni Chowk, Connaught Place, Lajpat Nagar, Amar Colony, Khan Market, South Extension and Greater Kailash, among others.

Following the sealing drive, traders had alleged that they were beaten up by the Delhi Police personnel deployed on the spot.

The sealing drive is being carried out on the order of the Supreme Court over "misuse of premises".
