Thousands of people are expected to gather at Azad Maidan in Mumbai on Saturday, reinforcing their pledge against corruption.

“Due to Anna Hazare’s nationwide anti-corruption crusade there is a strong wave. We have received messages saying that Mantralaya and municipal corporation officials are more careful while accepting bribes. We want to build on this mood and intensify the awareness against corruption. We will put up stickers at Mantralya, BMC and police headquarters dissuading people from accepting and giving bribe. If they are interested in tackling corruption they must act upon it,” said Mayank Gandhi, Mumbai coordinator of India Against Corruption.

“The cops suggested that we hand over stickers to the municipal commissioner for having them pasted on desks of its staff. We will do that for all police stations too,” he added.

The delegation will meet at Azad Maidan at 3 pm and discuss the Lokpal Bill. After that it will proceed to meet the chief minister, the municipal commissioner and the police commissioner with written requests asking to put a stop to corruption.

The campaign will provide a helpline number for people to lodge complaints.
