Addressing the protesters, district Congress unit general secretary K M Vinayaka said, "Birur Junction provides connectivity to different parts of the country. Mysuru-Varanasi, Yashvanthpura-Pandarapura, Yashvanthpura-Bikaner, Yashvanthpura-Hazrath Nizamuddin Samparkakranthi Express, Yashvanthpura-Chandigarh Samparkakranthi Express are also not given stoppage at Birur.
