Councillors at the East Delhi Municipal Corporation’s Standing Committee meeting on Thursday raised concerns over alleged “wrongful sealing” being carried out in east Delhi.
Mr. Singh said he had directed officials to seal large properties first, however small properties will also be sealed if found illegal.
BJP councillors claimed that empty properties that were not violating rules were being sealed by civic officials.
In response to demands by some members for verification, he assured the panel that videos and photographs of sealing will be taken henceforth.
EDMC Commissioner Ranbir Singh told the committee that many property owners in the area had been given alternative plots but still continued to operate illegally.
