The rally was aimed at impressing upon the Government of India, the need to allow Karmapa Ogyen to enter either of the three historic Monasteries in Sikkim - Rumtek, Phudung or Ralang on the auspicious occassion of Drukpa Chesu on August 6th.

The rally organizers have also started a relay hunger strike in BL House Gangtok which they have said will continue till the day government agrees to allow Karmapa Ogyen to enter Sikkim.
