Organisers attributed the thin crowd to winter chill and absence of Anna Hazare.
The protest was scheduled to start at 10am but even after an hour, the Ramlila Maidan wore a deserted look with a handful of supporters.
Recorded music was played at the venue with the supporters waving tricolour and launching into sporadic sloganeering against government.
The protest had elicited a lukewarm response yesterday with the programme starting with a low 500 turnout. This morning the numbers dwindled.
