Anna Hazare has issued a 'Jail Bharo' threat to the government via a video message today. We'll tell you how you can extend support to this movement online
BANGALORE, INDIA: Anna Hazare, who is traveling to New Delhi today to participate in an indefinite fast announced by his team from Jantar Mantar, has released a video message to the government.
"Let us see what the government does during the fast. If the government does not take any decision (on the demands raised by us with regard to Jan Lokpal Bill) in the first three-four days of the agitation, I will tell people across the country to go on jail Bharo agitation,'' said Anna, according to media reports.
If Anna Hazare does call for the 'Jail Bharo agitation', here's how one can express their support towards the movement:
1. To register for the movement via mobile phones, send ''Jail Bangalore'' (if you reside in Bangalore) to 575758, or call 07303150500.
2. You can also register online on JailChalo.com, where 1,75,776 people have already registered for the movement.
Although this website was meant for the Jail Bharo agitation, which was called for in December, they do invite registrations to demonstrate Indians' solidarity for the cause to eliminate corruption in our country.
India Against Corruption (IAC) media coordinator Aswathi Muralidharan said that they had already received about 4,000 online registrations from people across the country, who are willing to fast with Arvind Kejirwal, Manish Sisodia and Gopal Rai tomorrow.
Team Anna has also been sending messages to people who are registered with them, to give a missed call to a specified number to continue their support for the Jan Lokpal Bill.
The fast is scheduled to start tomorrow and continue till August 8. If Anna Hazare does call for the 'Jail Bharo' agitation, would you support him? Do let us know.
