Mumbai:  Extending support to social activist Anna Hazare over the Lokpal Bill issue, Mumbai's famous dabbawalas (lunch-box carriers) have said there would be no service on August 16 - the day he proposes to start his hunger strike.

"We support Anna Hazare in his fight for a strong Lokpal Bill. On August 16, when Annaji would go on a fast, we have decided to show our support by asking our customers not to give tiffins for delivery," said the president of Mumbai Jeevan Dabbawala Association, Sopan Mare.

About 4,500-5,000 dabbawalas transport some 2, 00, 000 homemade lunch packs everyday across Mumbai.
