Various organisations participating in the strike include Southern Gujarat Chamber of Commerce (SGCC), Surat Citizen's Council and Saurashtra Jaladhara Trust.

A meeting was held at the Chamber today to discuss the issue, in which various organisations expressed their concern.

SGCC president Dileep N Chasmawala said the Chamber was not against any individual, but the enormity of the issue was so vast that the people of entire Saurashtra and North Gujarat region would be affected. Therefore, it was important to give support to the cause.
