This is the second letter to Baijal written by the New Delhi Traders Association (NDTA). It cited huge financial losses as a cause of concern for traders.
A trader was miffed that trader associations have supported the government all this while and are the largest tax-paying sector, but still there is no support from the government to them.
In his letter, NDTA president Atul Bhargava said the traders have been suffering due to the restrictions and are forced to work only eight to 10 days a month.
Some traders stressed that the government should focus on improving the ground situation of markets first and then come up with such ideas.
More than seven lakh commercial establishments and more than 2500 markets across Delhi are participating in the shutdown, an official note said.
Both AAP and BJP took credit for changes made to the Delhi Master Plan 2021, aimed at providing relief to city traders from the ongoing sealing drive.
