Thin crowds on second day of Team Anna fast

New Delhi: Day two of Team Anna’s indefinite fast against corruption got off to a slow start Thursday with thin crowds and leaders of the movement missing in the morning hours.

Anna Hazare and Kiran Bedi came to the fast venue Jantar Mantar only at 11 a.m., much to the disappointment of the people who had come to express solidarity with the cause.

Arvind Kejriwal, who is leading the fast this time, was also missing as he is out of Delhi and had gone to Bulandshahr, in Uttar Pradesh, a Team Anna member said. Kejriwal is expected to join back the fast later in the day.

Other leaders fasting along with him are Manish Sisodia and Gopal Rai.

“I came here around 8 a.m., but till 11 a.m. no one came, it was disappointing,” said Ramesh Dayal Sharma, a resident of Delhi’s satellite town of Faridabad.
