  • Issue of sealing houses in the name of shops will be taken up with the Monitoring Committee

Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs and former BJP Delhi Pradesh President Vijay Goel today demonstrated against the arbitrary sealing with local merchants in the North-West Delhi's Trinagar area. He mentioned that he will take up the matter of shops getting sealed despite being paid conversion charges with the MCD officials. He also added that he would raise the issue of houses getting sealed in the name of shops with the Monitoring Committee.
Speaking to the media,Goel said we cannot afford to push people to take drastic steps because of the sealing. Goel wasreferring to an incident wherein a 35-year-old tailor from Bihar, reeling under financial crisis after his owner’s shop was sealed in the ongoing sealing drive committed suicide in northwest Delhi’s Keshawpuram.
Goel said that local traders have suffered because of the sealing driveand many have expressed anger. The fact is that factories in the area have already been shifted out and their shutters are down, and people are leaving there. Ironically, these houses are also being sealed. Similarly, the shops who have already paid conversion charges to the MCD are getting sealed too.
Goel remarked that members of the Supreme Court-appointed monitoring committee carrying out the sealing drives are not aware of ground realities and have overlooked people’s plight. He stated that stakeholders involved with the sealing process needs to understand the resentment of the people and take immediate and corrective steps.
On the occasion, Goel assured all the traders and people in the locality that he would take the matter up with the SC-appointed Monitoring Committee and MCD officials. He further added that he is not against sealing, but rules and human aspects cannot be ignored.
Vijay Goel said that thousands of families are on the brink of destruction due to sealing.He said he has no intention of interfering in the process of preventing unauthorized construction but pointed to the fact that all aspects relating to the sealing should be considered.

My vision for Delhi stems from these inspiring words of Swami Vivekanada. I sincerely believe that Delhi has enough number of brave, bold men and women who can make it not only one of the best cities.

Delhi Villages Delhi has 369 villages which, though called as Urban Villages but, continue to suffer from developmental inequalities. The basic infrastructure is in such a sorrow state that some villages

Education empowers our children, making them strong enough to look after themselves in any given situation. A large role in delivering the education is played by our educational institutions

Power is the basis of human lives and is used in almost everything we have. Hence it's vital in the interest of social development and welfare that power reaches to common citizens

Water, though being one of the most precious resources on the earth, is availabile in limited amount. Hence it's necessary that due management of the water resources is taken for the existence of life.

Healthcare The Delhi government being the major health service provider is responsible for the healthcare services in Delhi but due to lack of planning and vision of Delhi government

Delhi Villages It's ironic that our national capital Delhi, which is often termed as a world-class metro, still has over 360 under-developed villages in it. These villages are detached from the city and seem unaware of the tremendous progress all around them.

Youth Development Youth is the backbone of our country's progress and we all need to work towards their overall development. Apart from providing training & employment in traditional careers I have always encouraged active youth participation in politics.

Education is a progressive discovery of our ignorance. Hence it's imperative in the interest of societal development that its children and youth are well educated. It's a shame that Delhi despite being the capital of India is not fully literate whereas a small state like Kerala has attained 100% literacy.

Water is vital for the existence of life but we need to realize that like all the other resources it is not unlimited and, going by the experts' opinion, the next war could be fought because of it.

Housing To own a home, irrespective of the size, is a dream cherished by many. I understand this sentiment and that is why I championed the cause to help protect the applicants who were promised homes and felt cheated by the Delhi government.

Power is one of the basic amenities of life happens to be a matter of great concern for the citizens of Delhi. Faulty meters, power shortage and inflated power bills are the most common grievances faced by every other citizen.


I believe the youth is the backbone of our country's progress and I have always worked towards their overall development.


Chandni Chowk I have a keen interest in exploring and learning about culture, traditions and Heritage. Chandni Chowk, my former parliamentary constituency, is a perfect example of the multicultural and multi-religious India.
