Changing plans, activist Arvind Kejriwal and his disabled supporters will march towards Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's residence on Friday, instead of laying siege to Congress chief Sonia Gandhi's house, to demand action against Law Minister Salman Khurshid for alleged malpractices in his NGO.

Kejriwal had on Wednesday announced that he will join the disabled people in gheroing Sonia Gandhi's residence. But on Thursda,y his aides said there were changes in their plan after discussions with the disabled activists and they will march to the prime minister's residence instead.

"Tomorrow, disabled people will march towards 7, Race Course Road, the official residence of the prime minister. The earlier plans have been changed," a member of Kejriwal-led India Against Corruption said. Kejriwal had also tweeted about plans to gherao Gandhi's residence.

A Hindi news channel had alleged that the NGO of Khurshid and his wife Louise forged signatures of senior officials in several districts of Uttar Pradesh, depriving disabled people of their money.

Louise Khurshid denied the allegations and said it was "devoid of any merit, and is false, malicious and baseless".
