As Anna Hazare’s anti-corruption campaign gains momentum, youngsters in Gurgaon, especially those working in MNCs, are widely using the new media to garner support for the movement. They are urging all family members, friends and colleagues to extend their support to the cause.
Then there are Noida’s IT professionals of Noida who are distributing pamphlets in colleges, offices, buses and Metro trains.
The message reads: “Hazare seeks passage of the Jan Lokpal Bill, drafted through a civil society initiative. He seeks setting up of a joint committee with representation for citizens for the formulation of the Bill, pending since 1968.”
Dinesh Bhardwaj of Noida said, “We should go to our offices with black ribbons on our arms.” And Kamal Ahmed from Gurgaon didn't go to office on Friday. And it was no extended weekend, but a show of solidarity with Hazare. “Even though corruption can't be stemmed easily but we should have strong anti-corruption law in place," he said.
