The Anti-corruption movement initiated by Anna Hazare is gaining popularity among all Indians, and with the power of social media, the movement has widespread across the entire world. India Against Corruption (IAC) is a citizens’ movement to fight back against corruption by creating a strong Jan Lokpal institution. It demands strong anti-corruption laws to remove corrupt politicians and officials from the country. The movement has brought together thousands and millions of people to support Anna and the cause he is fighting for.
What is the Jan Lokpal Bill?
The JanLokpal Bill, also known as the citizens’ ombudsman bill, aims to hinder corruption, redress grievances of citizens and protect whistle-blowers.
The India Against Corruption movement has not just aroused the real world, but also the virtual world. The social media is playing an important role in this movement. We are seeing people changing their profile pictures (DP’s) to Anna Hazare’s picture and posting messages on Facebook and Twitter (and Google Plus also) in support of the movement, eventually spreading the news across the world.
To add more to it, Juvenus Technologies, a start-up company with a team of IITian and NITians has developed an app for Android and Nokia mobile users. The app, India Against Corruption helps you stay updated with all breaking news, live streaming of videos, polling and information regarding the events carried out.
