Thousands march in Mumbai in support of Anna
The Hazare-led mass movement continued to get support from the Hindi film industry.

Mumbai: As Anna Hazare's fast in Delhi for a strong Lokpal Bill entered the sixth day on Sunday, massive support poured in for him in the metropolis, where thousands of people took out a march in show of solidarity for the Gandhian's anti-corruption movement.

Thousands of Mumbaikars sporting the now famous 'I am Anna Hazare' caps gathered from across the city at suburban Bandra and took out a march till Juhu, covering a distance of 4 km, amidst heavy police presence.

The crowd held banners and posters seeking an effective anti-graft ombudsman and shouted slogans supporting the 73-year-old social activist, who is on a fast in the national capital since August 16.

The Hazare-led mass movement continued to get support from the Hindi film industry. Bollywood actors Shreyas Talpade and Celina Jaitely on Sunday morning met Hazare supporters gathered at Azad Maidan in south Mumbai.

"The time has come for us to unite. It's time to support Anna," Celina said.

Talpade asked politicians to shun corrupt practices.

"Don't forget you are elected for the people, by the people and of the people," he said.

Elsewhere in the city, a group of people organised a motor rally in support of Hazare and his Jan Lokpal Bill.
