Eminent activists Teesta Setalvad, Fatima Nafees, Gujarat MLA Jignesh Mevani, actress Swara Bhaskar, youth leaders Shehla Rashid and Gurmehar Kaur joined the rally in support along with several other youths and locals. Even rains and hailstorms were able to affect the enthusiasm of the massive crowd which shows no sign of dispersing anytime soon.

Around 15,000 people walked a distance of eight and a half to ten kilometres of the rally that was splashed with rain drops and hail. More than ten thousand people gathered for the Jan-Sabha at the BSS high school ground in Begusarai.
