Marandi breaks fast on 7th day

To mark the end of fast on seventh day, Marandi was given a glass of juice by one of the members of a family which had lost its house in the anti-encroachment drive at the Mohrabadi ground here, JVM-P's Principal General Secretary Pradip Yadav said.

Marandi sat on hunger strike to demand a special assembly session to pass a bill that would protect the people who had already been displaced or were facing the threat of displacement following encroachment of government land.

After the 'failure' of the first round talks on Thursday between the government and the JVM-P delegation, the JVM-P organised the 'people's court' at Morabadi, which urged him to break the fast.
