New Delhi:- After Central government accepted his demands, social activist Anna Hazare on Thursday ended his six-day fast at Ramlila Maidan in Delhi. Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and Union Minster of State for Agriculture Gajendra Shekhawat called on Hazare to convey him messages of Central government agreeing to his demands.
“This will be a satyagrah for Jan Lokpal, farmers’ issues, and poll reforms. At least 1.2 million (12 lakh) farmers have committed suicide in the past 22 years. I want to know the number of industrialists who committed suicide during this period,” Hazare said. The venue of his protest will be the same iconic Ram Lila Maidan, where he sat on a hunger strike in 2011 demanding that the then Congress-led government set up a Lokpal to investigate cases of corruption.You cancelled trains carrying protesters to Delhi, you want to push them to violence. Police Force deployed for me as well. I wrote in many letters that I don’t need police protection. Your protection won’t save me. This sly attitude of the government is not done: Anna Hazare
