The news of anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare ending his fast at Ramlila Maidan on Sunday brought cheers to the supporters of the Gandhian in Mumbai.
A number of programmes like victory march and marathon have been organised on Sunday in Mumbai and suburbs.
After Hazare's announcement of ending the fast on Sunday, his supporters could be spotted greeting each other, calling it 'Anna's victory'.
To express their happiness, some of them even burst crackers. Commuters on train could also be seen discussing Hazare's 'victory' and developments related to it.
"It is a celebration time. Two victory marches would be taken out on Sunday, one in the morning and the other in the evening," Mayank Gandhi, Mumbai unit in-charge of India Against Corruption told PTI.
"A mega-marathon has also been organised by the Chembur Sports Academy at 6 am tomorrow in suburban Chembur, in which 3,000 people are expected to participate. They will take part in the marathon, wearing Gandhi caps and T-shirts with Hazare's picture on it," sources said.
