People voiced their frustration on social media platforms like X (formerly Twitter). One user, Manu Sharma, expressed their dissatisfaction, saying, “Unexplainable traffic jam at Dhaula Kuan from Parade road!! Why is it not being managed or being at least informed to avoid this road!” Another user, Shrikant, highlighted the lack of traffic management efforts, stating, “Extreme mismanagement at Dhaula Kuan. People have been stuck for the last hour. Can’t see anyone even trying to mitigate or reroute the traffic.”
