This Maha Panchayat was organized by Kandela Khap. Several thousand people had reached the Mahapanchayat. When the stage broke, Tikait said, “The stage is broken, it is good, fortunate people break the stage … These people are also the same, these tractors are also the same.

During this time hundreds of people had occupied the display site of Shaheen Bagh.
