Anna Hazare said, ‘I was sitting on a hunger strike at Ramlila Maidan in Delhi for the first time on March 21, 2018, regarding various demands related to farmers. Hazare said, ‘On the seventh day, then Minister of State for Agriculture Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, then Chief Minister of Maharashtra Devendra Fadnavis came to meet me. At that time, he accepted the demands and gave written assurance, but they never met. Hazare said, ‘As a result, I again sat on a hunger strike on January 30, 2019 at Ralegan Siddhi. Even then, the Union Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh, Minister of State for Defense Subhash Bhamre and Fadnavis had given written assurances, but the demands were never met.
Hazare said, “I have once again decided to resume that protest in Delhi in January, which has been going on for the last three years and has sent a letter in this regard to the Center.” He said, ‘Take concrete decisions or I am firm on my decision (to resume the protest)’. Hazare (83) said on Sunday, ‘The government only makes hollow promises, so I have no faith in that (government) now. Let us see what action the Center takes on my demands. They have asked for a month’s time and I have given them time till the end of January. If my demands are not met, I will go on hunger strike again. This will be my last performance.
