SMS card to inform people about Hazare's movement

April 09, 2012 15:34 IST

As part of its efforts to reach out to more people, the anti-corruption movement led by Anna Hazare has introduced an SMS card which will provide subscribers with round the year updates about the campaign.

"We have procured one crore cards, each priced at Rs 20 and activists of India Against Corruption are distributing them among people," Hazare's associate Datta Awari told PTI from Ralegan Siddhi.

The SMS card will ensure that the holders are informed about the Hazare-led campaign's activities for a year, Awari said.

"The users have to SMS the serial number of the scratch card, to 9223334545 and they will be given regular updates on our programmes throughout the year, in Hindi and English," he said.

The cards have been sent to Delhi and Chennai from where they will be distributed to other parts. We are not going to make any profit out of selling or distributing these cards, Awari said.

In Ralegan Siddhi, the distribution started on April 7, he added.
