Anna Hazare
New Delhi, Aug 23: The crowd who came in thousands at the Ramlila Maidan to support Anna Hazare's Jan Lokpal Bill are slowly dwindling down.

According to reports, the crowd who filled the Ramlila Maidan in the first three days, were lesser in number as many had to return back to work.

"Last three days we saw a record crowd but today we don't expect such a crowd," said a volunteer, who said that the number of people came down to 6,000.

Protestors at the ground said that it was unfair to expect large number of people to gather at Ramlila Maidan everyday.

"It is wrong to say that we protest only on holidays. It is not possible for people to come here everyday. But I have come here and same is the case with so many others. It is not fair to say that people are not coming," said Himanshu Sharma, a sales executive, Gurgaon.

Despite the less number of people gathered, the spirit and enthusiasm of the masses were the same, many were seen waving the tricolour.

Meanwhile, Arvind Kejriwal appealed to the masses to maintain “decorum" of the movement.

"We have seen some people breaking traffic rules while protesting. I would request everybody to obey law and protest peacefully and responsibly," said Kejriwal.
