New Delhi: Opposition leader Devendra Fadnavis-mediated senior social activist Anna Hazare called off his fast on Friday night. Anna Hazare was going on a hunger strike in Ralegan Siddhi from January 30 for various demands of farmers. Meanwhile, BJP leaders, including Union Minister of State for Agriculture Kailash Chaudhary, met Anna at Ralegan Siddhi on Friday night. Anna called off the fast after the Center promised to set up a high-level committee on Anna’s demands to resolve the issue immediately. Since then, Anna’s role has been questioned on social media and by some leaders.
Anna had decided to go on a hunger strike to demand repeal of three agriculture laws by the central government, implementation of the Swaminathan Commission and various demands of farmers. Against this backdrop, Union Minister of State for Agriculture Kailas Chaudhary, Leader of Opposition Devendra Fadnavis, former ministers Radhakrishna Vikhe, Girish Mahajan and Babanrao Pachpute met Anna at Ralegan Siddhi on Friday afternoon. After the meeting, Fadnavis said that the corona delayed the questions suggested by Anna. Now, a high-level committee will be set up at the Center as per Anna’s demand. A meeting will be held in Delhi and Anna Hazare will also be present. The members of the committee will also suggest Anna.
The fast was called off after a meeting between Anna and Fadnavis. However, there are rumors circulating on social media that Anna’s credibility has been questioned. In this regard, Anna was asked a question, while answering it, he replied that he would see his spectacles as they were. “I thought it was important to have experts from both the government and ours in the high-powered committee. Also, accepting the 15 issues that we had given in the interest of the farmers, these issues will be discussed in the High Level Committee. Now, before going before this commission, this high-powered committee will also have suggestions and inspections from our expert bodies. After that, the final report will go to the commission. Our people will oppose what is wrong, “said Anna Hazare.
After discussing with the Union Agriculture Minister and others about the demand of the government, he assured me. In this regard, do you think that Anna’s fasting will affect your credibility? That was the question Anna was asked. To that, I don’t think so, and I don’t care. Because, I can’t satisfy 100 percent of people. The color of the spectacles, the color of the world is visible, the answer given by APB while talking to me.
Thank you Fadnavis
