Traffic was thrown out of gear in central Delhi on Thursday due to vehicular restrictions owing to a protest march by students. Traffic was also affected as vehicles were diverted on Sansad Marg where Prime Minister Narendra Modi was attending a meeting at Niti Aayog.

Traffic restrictions were put in place near Mandi House and barricades were put up outside Shastri Bhawan on the Rajendra Prasad Road where the protestors were headed to. Buses plying on the Rakabganj Road and Pant Marg were also re-routed.

Officials said both carriageways of Baba Gang Nath Marg from Nelson Mandela Marg and Aruna Asaf Ali Marg will remain shut till 8 pm due to demonstration at the JNU campus. “Baba Gang Nath Marg is closed by local police from Nelson Mandela Marg and Aruna Asaf Ali Marg due to a demonstration,” the traffic police tweeted from its official handle.

The Traffic police also alerted commuters about congestions at Dhaula Kuan and asked them to avoid the stretch. “Traffic will remain heavy in the carriageway from Dhaula Kuan towards Moti Bagh due to underpass construction work at Durgabai Deshmukh Metro Station. Kindly avoid the stretch,” it added.
