71

Social activist Anna Hazare has threatened to launch a hunger strike if the Union government fails to meet his demands regarding the welfare of the farmers by the end of January next year. He said that he is agitating for the betterment of the farmers for the last three years and this would be his last protest.

Speaking to reporters in his native village Ralegaon Siddhi from Ahmednagar district of Maharashtra, he said that the government is not paying attention to his demands which he is raising from last three years.

On December 14, Hazare wrote a letter to Union agriculture minister Narendra Singh Tomar warning of a hunger strike if his demands like the implementation of the MS Swaminathan Committee’s recommendations and granting autonomy to the Commission for Agricultural Costs and Prices (CACP), were not accepted.
