SYS State secretary A. Mohammed Paravur inaugurated the march. District president Sayed Swalahuddin Bukhari presided. Kerala State Minorities Development Finance Corporation chairman A.P. Abdul Wahab delivered the keynote address.

The protesters raised slogans against private lobbies that were allegedly working against the growth of Karipur airport. They warned that they would never allow anyone to destroy a facility built with their money and toil.
