At 10.15 hrs Massive Rally starts from Ambedkar Bhavan with Secretary General com.M.N.Prasad leading from the front followed by about 1000 comrades and exits the gates of Ambedkar Bhavan. 
The NDLS road traffic on the Jhansi Rani Road which was smooth till then slowly comes to a grinding halt owing to the passing of the Massive Rally which started with about 1000 members and ended up at the hunger fast Pandal near Jantar Mantar. As usual, Southern Railway comrades were at the tail end of the Rally along with some of their family members which was a very colourful sight. They shouted slogans cheerfully in three different languages viz. English, Tamil & Malayalam. Even the family members took part in repeating the slogans enthusiastically which bemused the accompanying Police forces as well as the passing public. Even though they could not understand our slogans fully, some of the public cheered us from the roadside and the buses in standstill traffic. The Rally passed through 4 important junctions and one could see the NDLS traffic coming to a grinding halt in all the roads that the Rally crossed. Even with a moderate walking speed the Rally took nearly 18 minutes to pass any particular point. And all through the Rally colourful banners of all the participating divisions and zones were held high in addition to the waving of hand held flags of AILRSA.

The spirit of the members participated in the Rally soared high which was evident from the sound of shouting and repeating the slogans. From each division/zone 2 or 3 comrades shouted the starting slogans like "INQUILAB ZINDABAD" and all the other members in a chorus replied with "AILRSA ZINDABAD". 

By this time the number of comrades in the Rally swelled to nearly 2000. The Rally with sounds like thunder and reverberating on the streets of NDLS finally reached the hunger fast pandal near Jantar Mantar at about 12 noon and the comrades continued to raise slogans in favour of AILRSA, Demanding the implementation of HPC with modifications sought by AILRSA, implementation of other reports like HLSRC and SPAD meeting minutes, etc for another 20 to 30 minutes at the pandal before Secretary General com.M.N.Prasad could begin his speech marking the start of the hunger fast.
