"In the last 120 years, we have not had the occasion to take a day off, come rain or shine. We never stop work. But we have decided to back Hazare's agitation," Sopan Mare of the Nutan Mumbai Tiffin Box Suppliers Association told reporters here today.
"To support Hazare, as the whole country is doing so, the 5000 dabbawalas in the city would hold a rally from Churchgate to Azad Maidan on Friday," Mare said.
Asked if their customers would be irked if they fail to deliver their tiffins, Mare said "they love us so much that they wont feel offended with our action." "All this is for a cause which we feel is just," he added.
