People out on roads to celebrate Anna’s victory – Hindustan Times

Scores of people came out on the roads in Delhi to express their elation over the victory of activist Anna Hazare, whose three key demands on the Lokpal bill were accepted by Parliament on Saturday. Sporting Anna caps, waving the tricolour and shouting slogans, people were seen heading towards India Gate.

Some people were found to be dancing to the tunes of patriotic songs on roads, while some took out car rallies and processions. Many people boarded the metro to reach Ramlila Maidan where Hazare will break his fast 10 a.m. Sunday. At the venue, people were applauding and singing patriotic songs.

People in Mumbai voiced happiness that the mass campaign led by Anna Hazare had forced parliament to take the first steps towards a strong anti-corruption legislation. “Anna has achieved what the people of the country wanted and he continues to remain safe and healthy,” Andheri businessman Rajeev Jain told IANS.
