Social activist Anna Hazare on Thursday said he will begin an indefinite fast at his hometown in Maharashtra’s Ahmednagar from January 30.
He has also urged his supporters to protest from their respective locations.
“I have been agitating for important demands of farmers for the last four years. It seems like the government is not taking proper decision on the issue of farmers. The government is not sensitive towards the farmers,” the 84-year-old activist stated in a press statement.
“We have kept our demands before the Central Government time and again. I have written letters to the Prime Minister and Union Agriculture Minister five times in the last three months. Representatives of the government are discussing the matter but they haven’t reached proper solution regarding the demands so far,” he added.
