In support of Kejriwal who is fighting a cause for people of the country, volunteers of India Against Corruption (IAC), the ngo that supported Anna Hazare’s anti corruption movement will collect donations of coins only from citizens as they feel it is people’s movement.

With banners displaying the message “Arvind Kejriwal has been wrongly fined. Let us contribute on his behalf coins of 25 paise, 50 paise, one rupee, five rupee and 10 rupees” groups of volunteers will stand at all public places in Mumbai including religious places like Siddhivinayak temple, Swami Narayan temple, Haji Ali Dargah, different churches, schools, colleges, railway stations, bus depots, parks, shopping malls and other major junctions.

On, September 11, i.e; the final Ganpati visarjan day, IAC volunteers will also ask for donations at major immersion spots at Juhu Chowpatty, Girguam Chowpatty, Shivaji Park and Worli.

Carrying gunny bags and containers, volunteers will collect maximum possible coin denominations.
