Former Union Finance Minister and senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Yashwant Sinha ended his stir "for the farmers' cause" in the Akola district of Maharashtra on Wednesday.

As reported earlier after speaking with Sinha, Wednesday evening, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis accepted all the demands of farmers.

However, the 80-year old former Union Finance Minister made it clear that this should not be viewed as a "victory or defeat" for anybody, but in the interests of the entire farming community of Maharashtra and the rest of the country.

Sinha spoke over phone with Fadnavis at around 11.30 am during which in which the chief minister conceded his last demand of purchasing all farm produce at the minimum support price by the government agency, the DC added. We had a good discussion.

"Promise me that no farmer will now commit suicide", Sinha appealed to cultivators who had gathered at the venue.

Sinha clarified that he is not against the ruling party but he wants to fulfil the farmers' demands.

Congress leader Prithviraj Chavan also extended the support and said that by detaining Mr Sinha, BJP has shown once again its facist and anti-farmers face. Sinha, who led a farmers' protest march to Akola district collector's office on Monday, is demanding that the farmers' demands be urgently redressed.

The leader refused to budge from the protest venue till all demands of farmers were met. Sinha had on Monday said the government does not appear serious about solving the problems being faced by agriculturists.

On Tuesday, Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray and NCP veteran Sharad Pawar also spoke to the BJP leader over phone and discussed the farmers' issues.

The farmers' demands, for which Mr. Sinha was agitating, include the purchase of some crops by the National Agricultural Cooperative Marketing Federation of India Ltd. (NAFED), assessment of and compensation for cotton farmers' crop loss due to bollworm attacks, and action against multinational companies for supplying defective seeds.
