It was a busy Sunday for the food kiosk owners at Jantar Mantar as swelling crowds thronged the venue of Baba Ramdev and Anna Hazare’s fast here Sunday.
While Baba Ramdev and Team Anna was on a one – day fast to raise voice against corruption, the followers seem to have come to see Anna and Baba together and enjoy variety of fast food items 🙂 .
Arvind Kejriwal, who was on fast along with Anna and Baba Ramdev, stormed out of the venue after Ramdev objected to Kejriwal taking names of MPs in his speech, which the yoga guru said was against the fast protocol.
In his speech , Arvind Kejrial mentioned that MPs like Lalu Prasad,Raja and Kalmadi would never pass the Lokpal Bill.Baba Ramdev however,took the microphone,after Kejriwal and tried to manage the damage with his speech!

Seems like the nation has given up on Anti-Corruption Movements and its leaders. May be, the nation feels better, the way it is.
