The state employees will go for a half-day mass leave after lunch in support of the Gandhian.
"We have given a call for half-day mass leave and a candle march will be taken out at Ambedkar circle in the evening. We as citizens are with Anna. We want to give a message that we are not corrupt and we are also against corruption," Mahendra Chaudhary, a representative of state employees federation said.
Traders also staged a dharna at Badi Chaupad in the walled city. Wearing black ribbon in arms, they raised slogans in Hazare's support.
Several other programmes are also proposed later in the day.
