NEW DELHI, April 10 (IANS) - Social crusader Anna Hazare Sunday said he plans to travel across the country and use SMSs to discuss the Lokpal Bill with people, after his resounding victory on the demand for a tougher anti-graft legislation.

"We have to now plan our strategy for drafting of the Lokpal Bill and for that we need to reach out to people," Hazare said a day after ending his 97-hour-long fast in Delhi that became a people's movement against corruption.

"We will travel across the country and use technology like SMS so that their concerns are addressed," he added.

Hazare, 73, also said he never expected the movement to grow so big.

"I have been fighting against corruption for the last 25 years. Corruption has increased so much and no day passes when you don't get to hear any corruption related news. I have given my life for the country and society. So I decided to do something, but never expected it would grow so big," Hazare told reporters here.

The veteran Gandhian broke his fast Saturday morning after a government notification on the formation of a 10-member committee, including five civil society members, to draft a stringent anti-graft bill.

"I had planned to organise it (the campaign) in Maharashtra but later we shifted to Delhi. I got massive support from people and media since I landed in Delhi and it became so big," he said.
