Carnival atmosphere at Ramlila Maidan

Sporting tricolour headbands and wrist bands and waving tricolours, people started pouring in the Maidan from early in the morning.

Many protesters returned to the ground after a good sleep, saying they want to ensure that the support the Gandhian was receiving should not dwindle.

"I was here yesterday and we want to ensure that Anna's support does not dwindle," Kishan Kher, a businessman from Meerut said.

The crowd broke into cheers as Anna took the centrestage at 9 am. The crowds also clamoured to give a byte to the TV cameras.

"It is important to talk to TV cameras. After all this is how the message goes out that there is something happening here in Delhi," Kamal Singh Rathore, a resident of Rohini in the national capital said.

A host of people dressed as Gandhi and Shivaji were seen taking rounds of the ground.

Volunteers were seen distributing biscuits, tea and water to the people and the large media and police contingents posted at the venue.
