The low turnout and Anna Hazare's absence at Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee's rally Wednesday was not the first time the politician's hopes have been dashed in the capital. Banerjee sought to explain the poor attendance by saying it was not a Trinamool Congress rally, while an aide of Hazare said he would have gone if there were 10,000 people at the Maidan. Earlier, Banerjee was embarrassed in Delhi when in the run-up to the last presidential elections, Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav had made an about-face after proposing three names jointly for president. He then supported someone else.
