New York: Two organisations representing
people of Indian-origin here are planning to launch a mass
movement and fast to awaken the consciousness of Indian
diaspora against the "massive corruption" in their homeland.
The Friends of India Society of International (FISI)
and Bharat Swahiman Overseas (BSO) are planning to launch a
mass movement and fast to awaken the consciousness of overseas
Indians against the massive corruption, according to Bhishma
Kumar Agnihotri, former Ambassador-at-Large of India.



He said FISI would bring together friends of India
worldwide in order to safeguard the India and people of Indian
origin living outside India.
BSO is inspired by the Bharat Swabhiman movement of
Baba Ramdev.



To start with, the organisations are planning a public
fasting on June 4 across the US similar to the one planned in
India.



Fasting at least one day is part of the programme.
