Watch: Clash between traders and police over sealing in Delhi’s Mayapuri

New Delhi: Clashes erupted between local traders and police in Mayapuri Industrial area after MCD staffers launched ceiling operation in the region. Reportedly, traders pelted stones at police, following which the security forces resorted to lathi-charge.

The tensions in the area rose when a team of Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) came here on the directions of the National Green Tribunal (NGT) to seal pollution causing factories. The MCD team came to the location with a team of security forces personnel, following which the two units were pelted upon. The security forces later resorted to lathi charge.

Following the incident, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal tweeted, “It is a disgrace to beat one’s own traders. The traders hve supported BJP with their money and vote. In return the BJP is sealing their shops and beat them with latthis. Even at a time of election, such a barbarian lathi charge? BJP is clearing that BJP do not want the support from traders.”
