The protest was led by state president of Samajwadi Chhatra Sabha, Vineet Kushwaha. Protesters demanded dismissal of the BJP government which failed to control paper leaks.

After a scuffle with the police, the youth were bundled in a vehicle and taken to the Eco Garden. They alleged that the police also misbehaved with them in which one of the protesters suffered a fracture.

The police put up barricades to prevent protesters when they started walking towards the Legislative Assembly from the Samajwadi Party office. The police stopped them after which the youth staged a sit-in.

In a memorandum addressed to governor Anandiben Patel, it was said that there is a lot of anger among the youth regarding the rigging in NEET. A demand was also raised to dismiss the BJP government for the paper leak.
