Defending his action, Tiwari said that he “wanted to appeal” to the Supreme Court and its monitoring committee to ensure that no such “pick and choose” action was taken in the name of the sealing drive.
He asserted that he will not even spare the BJP-ruled municipal corporations in such matters.

“Only one house in the lane, which I visited on Sunday, was sealed by the authorities. Why were others spared? This is corruption. Officials are sealing properties according to their whims and fancies. This should stop,” Tiwari said.
Seeking investigation and an FIR against “all persons responsible” for tampering with the seal, the East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) veterinary services department said the dairy in Gokulpuri was illegally running from a house and was sealed on Friday. The corporation resealed the premises on Monday.
The sealing drive is being carried out by a Supreme Court-appointed Monitoring Committee against business establishments using residential properties for commercial purposes. It is being implemented by the three BJP-led municipal corporations in Delhi.
