Hazare said, ‘I have agitated on many issues for a long time. Performing peacefully is not a crime. I have been raising farmers’ issues for three years. He commits suicide because he does not get the right price for his produce. The government has decided to increase the minimum support price (MSP) by 50 per cent – I have received a letter in this regard.
He further said, now that the central government has decided to work on these 15 issues (Anna Hazare’s demands for farmers), I have decided to cancel tomorrow’s fast. Explain that earlier this month, Hazare wrote a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said that he would start the last hunger strike in late January.
The whole team was engaged in persuading Hazare
To convince Anna Hazare, former leaders of Maharashtra Legislative Assembly Haribhau Bagde, Devendra Fadnavis, BJP leader Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil, Ahmednagar MP Sujay Vikhe Patil and other leaders have met him. Today, Union Minister Kailash Chaudhary also met him. At the same time, the central government finally got success in its efforts.
Trying to convince through draft
Agriculture Minister Narendra Tomar was also ready to resolve the matter. He met Devendra Fadnavis and Girish Mahajan in Delhi to prepare a draft, which was awarded to Hazare. Anna Hazare informed about the shortcomings of this draft. At the same time, the government agreed to remove these shortcomings, after which Anna canceled the fast.
