In less than an hour after Anna reached the Jantar Mantar along with his Team and supporters, a group of around 20 men barged into the venue shouting slogans against Aanna and Arvind Kejriwal. They were from National Students’ Union of India (NSUI), the students’ wing of the Congress party. Later they were taken out of the venue by the volunteers.

The Team circulated an audio recording of conversation between some students of the NSUI which was recorded by a volunteer. Team Anna member Gopal Rai said, "In the CD they said ‘anna ko dhakka denge, Manish aur Kejriwal ko thok denge’. I want to tell them that I, too, am part of this team." He said, "Today, they are in power, in 2014 we'll have the power and then we'll bring a revolution across the country. A revolution that will ensure no youth is unemployed and everyone has food and a house."

He said this is not one man’s fight but of every individual who wants a corrupt-free country.

Taking on Pananb Mukherjee, who took oath as the 13th president of the country, Arvind Kejriwal said, “Our Team will not stop talking about corruption cases against Mukherjee just because he has become the president. We have covered his face on this stage with a sheet. We'll discuss corruption charges against prime minister Manmohan Singh, P Chidambaram, Kapil Sibal and Mukherjee in detail. We'll discuss cases of four ministers every day."

Kisan Sangathan and workers’ union were also present at the Jantar Mantar to support Anna. Besides, there are many people from villages in the NCR regions. However, there are less people from the capital.
