Anna Hazare breaks indefinite fast; on assurance from govt

Central government finally reached out to Hazare

On fast for host of his demands, the anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare today ended his fast by consuming juice at the hands of Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis.

Anna Hazare had been on fast since March 23 of this year.

He had been demanding appointment of Lokpal at the Central government and Lokayuktas in states besides giving better prices to farmers for their yield.

Hazare had asked the government to provide with details of how the execution would happen along with a timeline.

On Monday, the Central government finally reached out to Hazare with its emissary and Maharashtra minister Girish Mahajana and assured the social-activist that most of his “demands will be taken care of”.
