Mumbai: After the 'Occupy Wall Street' campaign in New York, some Indians have started a move on social networking sites to 'Occupy Dalal Street' where the country's premier bourse, the Bombay Stock Exchange, is located.

Among other things, the 'Occupy Dalal Street' campaign wants to fight "greedy capitalism" and "greedy corporates", the media and even India Against Corruption (IAC), which supports anti-corruption activist Anna Hazare.

The move has started in a small way on social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter.

A Facebook page titled "Occupy Dalal Street Movement" was created recently.

The administrator of the page posted: "Friend, let us fight against greedy capitalism. Any extremism is ruinous whether extreme capitalism or socialism."

"Everything is captured and controlled by greedy corporates, be it government, media or even IAC. So let us unite against this greedy corporate culture which is represented by Dalal Street in India like Wall Street in USA," he added.

To this, another Facebook user commented: "The other Occupy Mumbai is better. We should direct anger at the government, not the corporates."

Author and great grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, Tushar Gandhi tweeted: "It's time that the Indian poor launch an 'Occupy Dalal Street' and gherao FM & Planning Commission Satyagraha."

User JagPaw responded: "We are waiting for a messiah called Lokpal coming to save us from sin."
