The Hubballi-Dharwad City district Congress unit organised the jatha in response to a call from the Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC).

Anil Kumar Patil and Altaf Halwoor, both leaders of the Congress, launched a scathing attack on the Union government, blaming their poor economic policies for the rise in fuel prices, which has led to a rise in the prices of other essential commodities.
