Why Environmental Activist GD Agarwal Fasted Until He Died

Environmental activist GD Agarwal died after carrying out a 111-day hunger strike to protest government inaction on cleaning up the Ganga. Agarwal held a PhD in environmental engineering from the University of California in Berkeley and dedicated his life to saving the river. Prime Minister Narendra Modi offered his 'condolences' after Agarwal died.

    why fasting is considered a weapon against government. Why all our activists do fasting against government without any activities? Is it only India or It's a procedure which works in every country? Farmera die due to hunger, every single day. Government never and then this.

    आपके संघर्ष और हौसले को नमन।देश का दुर्भाग्य है कि सरकार और जनता दोनों आपको समझे नहीं।परन्तु मुझे विश्वास है कि उमा भारती को अच्छी तरह समझ चुके हैं

    When there are good deeds on the base of religion, they don't even care even if a man dies because of the cause! On the other side, if it is bad deeds in the name of religion, they are ready to support murderers! I don't know when the religious people are gonna realise what this govt. actually think.
