A person from Sangam Vihar, who had come to Lajpat Nagar Central Market for shopping, said, “Due to overcrowding in the market area, it took us almost an hour to reach here. The market is overcrowded due to Dhanteras.”

One of the commuters, a resident of Sangam Vihar who had come to shop at Lajpat Nagar Central Market said, “Due to excess crowd in the market area, it took us almost an hour to drive through the lanes to reach Central Market here. It’s usually a crowded market but due to Dhanteras, it is even slower.” Keshav Singh, who was commuting from Gurugram to Delhi, said he faced heavy traffic entering the city on the border, not to speak of the jams he negotiated to reach Dwarka and then the centre of the city.

“It took me around half an hour to reach from Punjabi bagh to Netaji Subhash Place which is 10 to 15 minutes ride. The car was only driven in second gear due to bumper to bumper traffic,” said Bhaskar, another commuter.
