What Delhi does, Mumbai can do better, a mammoth gathering of activist Anna Hazare's supporters proved. Sanchari Bhattacharya reports.

Manmohan Singh, Sonia Gandhi and Kapil Sibal would not have liked it here.

At a public meeting organised by supporters of activist Anna Hazare in Mumbai on Tuesday evening, many people had some rather uncharitable comments to make about the prime minister and the Congress president.

Hazare and fellow activist Arvind Kejriwal also took the opportunity to take several well-aimed pot shots at the telecom minister.

"Sonia, Manmohan, kuch subbudhi le lo hum se (let us impart some wisdom to you)," proclaimed one of the many posters held aloft at the venue.

On a makeshift dais set up by some traders' corporation, a speaker was addressing a small but attentive crowd, "You think people like Sonia Gandhi, Manmohan and Sibal are trying to help us? They are thieves and they are trying to ruin us".
