Anti-corruption activist Anna Hazare Sunday said that Prime Minister Modi was misleading farmers over the land acquisition bill, and that was why he (PM) was alleging that opposition parties were misleading them.

Anna was reacting to Modi’s Mann Ki Baat, in which the PM said that the bill was not anti-farmer and that opposition parties were misleading farmers on the bill.

Speaking to the media after attending a Shaheed Parivar Fund function here, Anna said, “After raising my voice against the land acquisition bill, I have been getting threats from Canada and Maharashtra. However, I am not afraid of anything and will fight for farmers till my last breath.” An FIR was recently filed regarding the alleged threats received by him.

Saying that the bill would only help big corporate firms, Anna said, “If the government really intends to help farmers, why did it not oppose the 2013 bill which was passed in Parliament by the UPA government?” asked Anna.
