Rajya Sabha MP and AAP leader Sanjay Singh blamed the BJP for the "dismal" state of traders, who are facing the brunt of the drive. "The BJP rules at the Centre and the BJP-led municipal corporations are initiating sealing drives and harassing the traders. Meanwhile, the BJP, too, questioned the AAP government over its failure to provide any relief to traders. On the other hand, Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee president Ajay Maken, while addressing a meeting of the Delhi State Traders' Congress at the DPCC office said, the ongoing sealing drive in Delhi was illegal as all the shopping areas in Delhi are covered from sealing in the existing laws. There is already a law in place to provide relief to the traders.
