Mithun Rai, District Youth Congress President who addressed the protestors  said  the decision of the Union government to withdraw the stamps of two great personalities who had contributed significantly to the nation, was unacceptable. Pointing out that the Congress had not withdrawn the postal stamp bearing the image of another former PM Vajpayee while it was in power, he warned that the Youth congress would protest at the  state level if the government did not revoke its decision.

Praveen Chandra Alva, Corporator, Meryll Rego and several other Youth Congress leaders and workers participated in the protest.
