After shocking the Indian smartphone owners by launching the “swadeshi” SIM card in partnership with BSNL, Yoga guru Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali has launched a messaging app named Kimbho.
Kimbho has been created by Patanjali to compete with Facebook-owned WhatsApp. This desi app’s tagline is “Ab Bharat Bolega,” which translates into “Now India Will Speak” in English.
Launching the app, Patanjali’s spokesperson SK Tijarawala called it India’s #SwadeshiMessagingplatform. “Now Bharat will speak. After launching SIM cards, Baba Ramdev has launched a new messaging application called Kimbho. Now Whats App will be given competition,” he added.
अब भारत बोलेगा…!
