Manish Sisodia writes letter to Amit Shah to direct LG to allow reopening of hotels

New Delhi: In a letter addressed to Home Minister Amit Shah, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Saturday requested immediate directions for Lieutenant Governor (LG) to allow hotels and weekly bazaars to re-open in the national capital. Manish Sisodia letter to Amit Shah came after the LG Anil Baijal on Friday overruled the Delhi government’s decision to re-open hotels and weekly markets on a trial basis as part of Unlock 3.

“Due to the closure of weekly bazaars, five lakh families have been sitting at home for four months. Now when they are hopeful that with control over coronavirus in Delhi they will get an opportunity to restart their business, binding them under the decision of closure is unfair to Delhi’s economic situation and hopes of lakhs of people,” the letter read.

“I request you to change your decision and direct LG to immediately accept the proposal by the Chief Minister. Delhi government will again send a file on this matter to him on Tuesday; I request you to ask LG not to stop it. When Delhi businessmen will start their work then only the economy will improve and jobs will be created,” Sisodia’s letter further read.

Sisodia said that the Delhi government was planning to send its proposal to the Lieutenant Governor again on Tuesday and asked Shah to ensure that the proposal is not stopped.
