The march was called by the Left-leaning All India Students Association (AISA) who had also staged a protest against the law at Jantar Mantar. The law was at the time not passed in the Rajya Sabha but was cleared in the lower house.

Hundreds of students had gathered outside Jamia Millia Islamia to mach to Parliament but as the Delhi police started using canes and tear gas, most of students were seen running away.
