New Delhi: The India Gate resonated with chants of 'Vande Mataram' this evening as a large number of people gathered at the war memorial to "celebrate the victory" of civil society on Lokpal Bill issue.

Shouting slogans hailing Anna Hazare, who called off his indefinite hunger strike this morning, people converged at the war memorial and held a candle light vigil.

Chanting 'Vante Mataram', they took out small processions near the India Gate. Some families, which had come there for an evening outing also joined the celebrations.

Carrying anti-corruption placards, the youth danced to the tunes of drum beats while others took out silent marches. Some people were seen waving tricolors.

"This is a memorable day. It will be etched in our memory for ever as people's will prevailed over those in power," said Anu Hazarika, an activist.
