Thousands of people on Tuesday joined the unique #TweetMorcha against arbitrary bank charges with the hashtag #BankSeBachao trending at top spot in India and also featuring in worldwide trends in the afternoon. People from across the globe sent tweets to @NarendraModi and @ArunJaitley with the hashtags of #BankSeBachao and #TweetMorcha.

The objective of this event was to call out to all those affected by unjust fees being levied and to urge them to participate in this protest, since the levying of such charges by banks amounts to an illegal practice.
