Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was shown black flags on Tuesday by agitating traders in Sadar Bazaar area of the national capital.

Earlier in the day, high drama was witnessed outside Kejriwal's residence when a delegation of BJP leaders went to visit the chief minister to discuss the issue of ongoing sealing drive in Delhi.

Leader of Opposition in Delhi Assembly Vijender Gupta said that the Delhi CM had called goons and that they were mistreated at chief minister's house. A police complaint in this regard has also been filed at the Civil Lines police station.

However, the Delhi chief minister accused a BJP delegation led by Delhi unit president Manoj Tiwari of walking out of the discussion instead of trying to come up with suggestions that could be presented to the Lt. Governor.

Addressing a press conference, Kejriwal said that the Delhi government will approach Supreme Court seeking a temporary ban on sealing drive.

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

The BJP leaders are demanding immediate notification of 351 roads as commercial and mixed-use categories so that traders on these stretches will be saved from the ongoing sealing drive.

The delegation included all the seven MPs of the BJP from Delhi, all the party MLAs from Delhi and the three mayors of the municipal corporations.
