He said that the CM also assured the traders that he would not allow anyone to snatch their livelihood from them.

“The Central government can stop all this if they wish. The DDA and the city police are under them,” he said.

On the directions of the National Green Tribunal (NGT) on April 11, Delhi government agencies, including the Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC) and area Sub-Divisional Magistrate’s office, carried out a sealing drive in the Mayapuri scrap market on April 13 which led to violence.
