Anna Hazare to begin indefinite fast over farmers’ issues

Amidst the ongoing deadlock between the protesting farmers at the Delhi borders and the central government, social activist Anna Hazare said that government is insensitive regarding the farmers' issue. Expressing his anger and disappointment against the Centre for ignoring all his pleas on the farmers' demands, as well as his letters written to the Prime Minister and Union Agriculture Minister five times in the last three months, he claims to be compelled to go on another hunger strike from January 30, 2021. The 83-year-old will join the farmers' agitation through his hunger strike over their withdrawal demand of the farm laws in his hometown in Ralegan Siddhi in Ahmednagar, Maharashtra.
