Protests are also planned in Rajouri Garden. In north Delhi, there will be protests in areas like Rohini and Ashok Vihar. Another car rally is planned in south Delhi. It will start from Lajpat Nagar and go through nearby areas like Bhogal. Traders of Greater Kailash Part-I have planned a sit-in near the main road on Tuesday and a protest march on Wednesday. South Extension traders have planned a corner meeting while traders of Kotla Mubarakpur will burn effigies, which might affect the Ring Road traffic.
