Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], Feb 3 (ANI): Shiv Sena on Sunday extended support to veteran social activist Anna Hazare, who is on the fourth day of indefinite hunger strike at his village Ralegan-Siddhi, demanding for setting up of a Lokpal at the Centre and Lokayuktas in states.
Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi led government at the Centre to fulfil the demands of the 81-year-old crusading activist.
"If the government will not listen to Anna, we will not leave any stones unturned to help him," the Shiv Sena chief told reporters here.
He also reminded the Centre about activists who had died pushing social justice agendas in the past.
"Professor Agrawal died in Haridwar while fasting for clean Ganga and government didn't listen to him. It is the fifth day of Anna's fast and the government is not paying any heed to his demands," Thackeray said.
Under the banner of 'Jan Andolan Satyagraha', the social activist Hazare launched his indefinite hunger strike on January 30 to demand the setting up of a Lokpal at the Centre and Lokayuktas in states as the Narendra Modi government "had failed" to set up the anti-corruption bodies. (ANI)
