Changing plans, Arvind Kejriwal and his disabled supporters will march towards Prime Minister's residence on Thursday instead of laying siege to Congress chief's house demanding 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 Thursday his aides said there were changes in their plan after discussions with the disabled activists and instead they will march to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's residence.

"Tomorrow, disabled people will march towards 7, RCR, 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 Khurshid 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".
