Patna, Jan 29 — Gandhi caps with "I am Anna" inscribed on them flooded Bihar Tuesday, a day ahead of activist Anna Hazare's rally here Jan 30.

India Against Corruption (IAC) gave one lakh trademark Gandhi caps with 'I am Anna' written on them to supporters from different parts of Bihar to attend the rally.

"We will also give the Gandhi caps to people who come for the rally by charging Rs.10. The caps will be given for free to those who can't pay for it," IAC member Sudama Singh said.

"We are charging the token amount to cover the cost of the caps," he said.

Singh said that one lakh such caps were being sewn by hundreds of women self-help groups in Patna, Bhojpur, Muzaffarpur and other districts in Bihar.

According to IAC members, hundreds of students, women and old people have purchased the caps in bulk to distribute them.

Last year, Hazare had announced he would launch a nationwide anti-corruption campaign from the historic Gandhi Maidan in Patna Jan 30. This would be the first mass anti-corruption rally of the Gandhian after splitting from Arvind Kejriwal.
