"Jain has resigned from the post of advisor to the Delhi chief minister citing personal reasons and family commitment", sources said to media. Over seven lakh traders would be participating in the protest, said the statement issued by CAIT.

While Kejriwal previously assured them of all help and even wrote to PM Narendra Modi, he has now called for an all-party meeting in a letter which read that 'there is a need for us to rise above party lines to find a solution to the sealing issue.' He has also requested that only three members of each party attend the meeting 'so that we can come to a fruitful solution'.

Sisodia said the BJP could resolve the issue "immediately" if it wanted to.

Maken also attacked the BJP for boycotting the meet.

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.

The sealings, being conducted under the monitor of a court-appointed committee, discontinued after 2012, when the state government proposed the Delhi Master Plan 2021, which allowed commercial establishments to run simultaneously in residential areas.

Health Minister Satyendar Jain and Development Minister Gopal Rai were among others who attended the meeting on Tuesday afternoon.

During the talks, AAP and Congress agreed to raise their voice in Parliament through their MPs against the drive being carried out since last December by municipal corporations in the city.

The traders' body has also appealed the Arvind Kejriwal-led government in the state to "bring a bill which could stop sealing" on March 16, when the Delhi Assembly would reconvene.

He also said that both parties should work together to find a solution to the issue. "AAP will support any such effort (sic)".

Advisor to Delhi's Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, VK Jain has resigned from his post citing personal reasons. The traders are suffering a lot due to the collusion and fake fight between the BJP and the AAP. All the following markets have been shut down: Chandni Chowk, Connaught Place, Lajpat Nagar, Amar Colony, Khan Market, South Extension, Greater Kailash, Karol Bagh, Kamla Nagar, Ashok Vihar, Vikas Marg, Preet Vihar, Model Town, Azadpur, Kalkaji.

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