December 28th, 2011 - 1:43 pm ICT by IANS  

Anna Hazare New Delhi, Dec 28 (IANS) As Team Anna’s protest in Delhi entered its second day here Wednesday, the crowds continued to remain thin while key members - Shanti Bhushan, Prashant Bhushan and Kiran Bedi - held a meeting at Ramlila Maidan.

According to police, around a thousand people were present at the Ramlila Maidan here which in no way matched the tens of thousands who thronged the venue when Anna Hazare fasted here in August.

Supporters holding the Indian flag and shouting slogans of “Vande Mataram” and “Inquilab zindabad” were seen watching live footage of Hazare’s fast at Mumbai on a huge LCD TV screen.

A number of daily labourers and homeless people too participated in the protest and partook of the hot breakfast of ‘poori’ and ’sabzi’ provided by ‘Anna ki Rasoi’.

The volunteers, however, stressed that the crowds will swell as the day progresses.
