No. Its nowhere near 50 thousands. But thousands they were.

The police warning given earlier, could be the reason for the reduced figure. It could also well be because it was Monday. Hectic schedules and usual traffic that came along with the usual Monday euphorias. Or maybe simply because majority of the people didnt really see the need to it or not used to it, the culture.
