A Public rally was also staged to mark the day. Various slogans demanding immediate implementation of Inner Line Permit system in the state were displayed in placards during the rally which began from Pishum Chinga to Manipur College.
President of AMSU Sanasam Subhachandra Singh said that the AMSU had taken up the “go back foreigners” to protect the indigenous people of the region.

In the uprising, two students namely Potsangbam Lukhoi and Kuidrom Loken were shot dead by the police personnel; many were also injured during the rally in the police action.

He expressed dissatisfaction over the non implementation of the 3 ILPS related Bills despite the fact that it was passed by the assembly as according to the desire of the people.
He further appeal to various communities of the state to unite for protecting the indigenous people of the state and also appeal to state government to work sincerely in the interest of the people.
Former president of AMSU L. Dilip, N Mohilal Meitei and convener of JCILPS Kh Ratan also graced the function as presidium members of the function.
