Social activist Anna Hazare ended her 7-day fast on Thursday after meeting with the chief minister of Maharashtra, Devendra Fadnavis.
Fadnavis and the Union Minister of State for Agriculture, Gajendra Singh, visited Anna after they reported a deterioration of their health. Anna’s doctor said Wednesday that her blood pressure was high and her blood sugar levels were low, which made her feel exhausted. Anna had also lost some weight due to the hunger strike.
Earlier in the day, Mahajan, who is Minister of Water Resources and Medical Education in the state, said that of the 11 major lawsuits filed by Hazare, almost 7-8 have been agreed upon. He also said that a written proposal will be given to Hazare.
Anna Hazare began her indefinite strike starting on March 23 to press for her demand to name a Lokpal in the Center, almost seven years after her anti-corruption movement captivated the imagination of millions of Indians and shook the then UPA government.
The place of his protest is the same iconic Ramlila Maidan, where he had sat on a hunger strike in 2011 demanding that the then government establish a Lokpal to investigate cases of corruption.
Before his indefinite hunger strike on March 23, Anna investigated the government and said they are trying to create an obstacle to her protest.
He said: “You canceled trains carrying protesters to Delhi, you wanted to push them into violence, the police also deployed to me, I wrote in many letters that I do not need police protection, your protection will not save me. .
