Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) president and MP N Uttam Kumar Reddy, party MLA D Sridhar Babu, former MP Ponnam Prabhakar and several other leaders took part in the demonstration.

".. under the leadership of RSS agent commissioner Anjani Kumar, the organisation held a march past with lathis and horses from LB Nagar to Saroor Nagar day before yesterday. We released a video (on that).

The Congress had also said one-day 'Satyagraha' would be held on Saturday if permission is not given to the rally. However, Hyderabad police had said permission was not granted for any rally, march or procession on Saturday.

After being prevented from taking out the rally, the Congress workers raised "police Go Back" slogans, even as many of them were seen arguing with the personnel. Congress workers held placards that read "Save Nation, Save Constitution" and "Reject NRC and NPR" during the protest. A large number of police personnel were deployed near the Gandhi Bhavan.
