A protester at the venue conceded that they had hoped to attract ten lakh people for the event but could not.
The national flag was hoisted at the protest venue by the mother of Rohith Vemula, deceased student of the University of Hyderabad.
The protesters, numbering a few thousand, recited the national anthem in unison as they observed India's 71st Republic Day.
