Indefinite Hunger Strike- Will Government Open Their Eyes?

Anna Hazare, who had launched his anti-corruption movement from Delhi nearly seven years ago, has returned to the iconic Ramlila Maidan in the capital. After over half a decade, his demands haven't changed. He began his indefinite hunger strike against the central government for failing to set up the Lokpal at the Centre and Lokayuktas in the states. He has also demanded the implementation of the Swaminathan Commission report, which has suggested ways to address the agrarian distress.
This is the 19th time that Hazare is on a hunger strike nearly seven years after his India Against Corruption movement stirred the political establishment of the country. But this time he has a lot more demands to be addressed. Agrarian crisis being the major focus area this time, he demands:
1.      Farmers must get production cost +50%
2.      Farmers above the age of 60 must be given a pension of Rs. 5000
3.      Constitutional status for agricultural pricing commission
4.      Individual insurance for every farmer

I think that it is the responsibility of every Indian citizen to support these people who are striking for their rights. Every farmer wants to see his next generation prosper and live a happy life. But today, we can see that all these dreams of our farmers have been shattered because of lack of support from ruling party as well as opposition party. I have hired to write a detailed article in this regard so that people may aware of this specific issue. It's high time that we should unite against this injustice and force our government to bring an end to this issue by fulfilling their demands without any further delay.
