In its third tweet, the Delhi Traffic Police mentioned that motorists must avoid Motilal Nehru Marg, Akbar Road, Janpath and Man Singh Road between the mentioned hours due to special arrangements being made on these routes. “Traffic movement will not be possible on these roads," the tweet noted.

These arrangements and advisory come ahead of the proposed march by the Congress leaders in the national capital, in support of their leader Rahul Gandhi, who has been summoned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in a money laundering case pertaining to the National-herald AJL issue.

Ahead of the march, the Delhi Police has also imposed section 144 CrPC in the areas around the party headquarters at Akbar Road. Police officials have also allegedly barricaded all entry points to the All India Congress Committee (AICC) headquarters, preventing the entry and exit of people.

The Congress party has planned to march from its party headquarters to the ED office while holding 'satyagrahas' outside the ED offices in states in solidarity with Gandhi.
