Ex Servicemen boost Anti- Corruption Rally

The Anti- Corruption Rally on 01 May 2011, at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi
Dear Friends,
Jai Hind.
The planned Anti-corruption Rally, at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi, on 01 May 11, went off very well. From small children to very senior citizen– people from all age groups were there.
The march from Jantar Mantar began at 6.00 PM and the last batch reached India Gate around 7.30 PM. Each and everyone taking part in the march was fully motivated, full of josh and highly disciplined. My rough guess is that length of the column on road was 2 km plus. After most of the persons marching reached India Gate, some of the participants took part in ‘Nukkad Dramas’. The rally ended with candle lighting at India Gate. There were large number of organisations seen distributing drinking water among the persons attending the rally. Very large number of media satellite stations, camera men and reporters were deployed at Jantar Mantar, India Gate and all along the route. Surprisingly actual coverage in print media and TV was negligible. Obviously– the media has succumbed to Government pressure.
I had taken some photographs of the rally, some of which are reproduced below.
Due to very little space in between the marching batches and hardly any raised point available in the area or along the route – the desired effect cannot be achieved by these photographs. Vande Matram
