The rally on Friday was peaceful. Protest leaders took turns in giving speeches criticising the government on various aspects, including inadequate aid for people who have been affected by the Covid-19 outbreak, delay in getting Covid-19 vaccines, unemployment, problems regarding land allotment for farmers and corruption in the appointment of senior police officers.
