`Anna Ki Rasoi` to feed supporters at MMRDA
Mumbai: Anna Hazare is on a fast for a
"strong" Lokpal, but elaborate arrangements have been made to
feed his supporters during the three-day protest.
`Poha` for snacks and `puri-sabji` for lunch and dinner
are some of the items being dished out by some organizations
who have set up base at the sprawling MMRDA ground, the
venue of the fast.
"We have made arrangements to provide snacks, tea and
food to 10,000 people," said Sumit Gupta from Giriraj Seva
Samiti, who has set up `Anna ki Rasoi along` with Janseva
Sansthan, an NGO from Rohtak.
Swami Chaityna Maharaj from Janseva Sansthan said that 60
people will be working round-the-clock to prepare the food.
"Tea and `poha` is being prepared for snacks and
`puri-sabji` for lunch and dinner," said Maharaj, who will
fast with Hazare on all three days.
"Anna says he will fast and others should support him. So
they need to eat, to be here for three days," he said.
"Main hoon Anna (I am Anna)" caps and badges are also
being sold for Rs 10 each. Raja, a young boy from Sadar Bazar
in Delhi has come down to the metropolis to sell the
merchandise. "In Delhi, I sold about 1000 caps every day," he
Theatre personality Bharat Dabholkar was the first
celebrity to be seen this morning sporting the Anna cap.
Since early hours, over 2000 people from the media
descended on the MMRDA ground for live coverage of the
Media and police contingents heavily outnumbered Anna
supporters at the venue.
