Akshay Nargade, one of the organisers, told Indian Express,

We are demanding that over two lakh vacant positions be filled in a phased manner. There are several scams that have come to light in these processes… the dummy candidate racket, Optical Mark Recognition system rigging… and teacher recruitment scam, to name a few. We demand that these scams be separately looked into by a judicial committee. Also, there are many people who have got government jobs via fraudulent means, and we are demanding they should be dismissed from services.”

The organisers cleared that they do not belong to any political party and only wants to highlight their pending demands. They also mentioned that the long march will be held in the night to avoid any inconvenience to people during daytime.
