A delegation later went to Rashtrapati Bhavan and submitted a memorandum to the President seeking her intervention in the matter. The protest was supported by several media organisations, including Press Club of India, Indian Women's Press Club, Delhi Union of Journalists, and Kerala Working Union of Journalists (Delhi Unit).
