The protesters blocked the railway tracks of the local route to CSMT. The agitation has affected the traffic of the Central Railway and the traffic to the CSMT has been delayed for 3 to 5 minutes. Police removed the protesters from the track and took them into custody. As rail services were held up, the slow line trains began running late and passengers were stranded. However, fast line traffic operation was unaffected by protesters. The same group also organised a protest outside Bandra East station against CAA, NRC and NPR.

The Bharat Bandh announced by Bahujan Kranti Morcha received support by many Dalit organisations. The organisations have been urging the public to participate in it as much as possible. They have also received support from the women protesting at Shaheen Bagh, as per reports.
