Indirectly urging protestors to clear the protest site by Holi, the interlocutor said, "We expect our sisters will send love to India on the occasion of Holi from Shaheen Bagh. Sisters can give Holi gift in advance. We will celebrate Holi this month. We will hug each other on Holi."

Lauding the women for maintaining peace despite the violence that recently rocked other parts of Delhi, the interlocutors told protestors all their demands had been conveyed to the Supreme Court. "Whatever you wanted, we conveyed it to the Supreme Court. We have submitted a report to Supreme Court," they said.
