Listen to the news
The peasant movement was on the verge of ending after the violence in Delhi on Republic Day, but the tears of farmer leader Rakesh Tikait on the Ghazipur border gave a new lease of life to the movement. Meanwhile, social activist Anna Hazare also announced to come out in support of the farmers. For this, he has chosen Bapu’s death anniversary i.e. January 30. Actually, Anna Hazare will start a fast-unto-death from this day. However, the government is trying to convince Anna and Union Minister Kailash Chaudhary Ralegan is going to Siddhi. The government is trying its best to postpone Anna’s fast unto death.
Where will the fast unto death?
According to the information, Anna Hazare will start a fast unto death at the Yadav Baba temple in Ralegan Siddhi. Anna Hazare says that since 2018, he has been requesting the Central Government to implement the recommendations of the Swaminathan Commission, but this did not happen. Due to this, they will have to go on fast unto death.
These leaders tried to convince Anna
Explain that the central government is busy working hard to convince Anna. So far, other leaders including former Speaker of Maharashtra Legislative Assembly Haribhau Bagde, former Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, BJP leader Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil, Ahmednagar MP Sujay Vikhe Patil have met Anna in Ralegan Siddhi. However, there was no way out during the conversation. Anna Swaminathan is adamant on the recommendations of the Commission and the demand for MSP. Now Union Minister Kailash Chaudhary will meet Anna today (29 January) and try to convince him.
Trying to convince through draft
According to the information, Agriculture Minister Narendra Tomar has also been gearing up to resolve the matter. He met Devendra Fadnavis and Girish Mahajan in Delhi to prepare a draft, which has been given to Anna Hazare. Anna will inform about the shortcomings of this draft. If the government agrees to overcome these shortcomings, Anna can withdraw his fast.
