Social activist Anna Hazare has announced that he will go on an indefinite hunger strike from February 14 demanding Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray to withdraw its order to sell wine in supermarkets.
The news: On Wednesday, Anna sent a ‘reminiscence letter’ to CM Uddhav Thackeray. In this, he has announced that he will stage a hunger strike from February 14 if the government does not withdraw its decision.
- Since the day the decision was announced, the senior social activist has been opposing the Maharashtra government’s order to sell wine in supermarkets and walk-in stores.
- Earlier on February 3, Anna Hazare had written the first letter to the Chief Minister opposing the excise policy, but got no response.
- After this, he had sent a ‘reminiscence letter’ to the Chief Minister to remind him again, he said.
- I have also written a letter to Deputy CM Ajit Pawar in this regard, but no response has come from him either, Anna added.
- “I am sending a reminder letter as no response was received from the state government. The state government recently decided to allow the sale of wine in supermarkets and grocery shops. The decision is unfortunate for the state and it will be dangerous for the coming generations.”
