New farm laws: BJP urges Anna Hazare not to go on hunger strike

Mumbai: A BJP delegation has requested social activist Anna Hazare not to go on strike after he warned the Centre on  farmers’ demand.

Hazare said he will go on hunger strike if the government failed to assure the farmers that the new agriculture laws will benefit them.

Maharashtra BJP leaders Haribhau Bagade and Bhagwat Karad, MP, met Anna Hazare in his hometown Ralegansiddhi in Ahmednagar district on the issue.

The social activist had written a letter to the Centre last week about the pending demands related to farmers and threatened to go on agitation for them.

The social activist was given written assurance by the Centre about his demands related to farmers.

The BJP delegation handed over copies of three farm laws to Hazare and assured him that these laws will greatly benefit farmers.
