Anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare, who had been on a hunger strike for seven days, has ended the fast after an assurance from Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis that his demands would be met. After ending the fast, the activist addressed the gathering at his village and said that the Maharashtra government would take a decision on his main demand — appointment of a Lokpal– on February 13.
“I am happy with the talks with the CM and hence, I am calling off the strike,” the activist said.
“We demanded implementation of Lokpal. And a decision on this will be taken on February 13,” he added.
