New Delhi: A day after his 12-day-long fast for a strong Lokpal culminated into a victory for both the civil society as well as Parliament, anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare on Sunday ended his hunger strike.

Anna broke his fast by drinking coconut water with honey, given to him by two girls - 5-year-old Simran and Ikra.

Addressing the crowd at Ramlila Maidan after ending his fast, the social activist described it as a victory of every Indian.

He also described it as a victory of the media for waking up the people of this country.

Vowing his fight will continue, the Gandhian said the anti-corruption movement was a lesson for the world to learn as to how to wage a non-violent battle.

Anna said the movement instilled trust in us that we can remove corruption from this country.

Asking people to be alert and keep a watch on the Lokpal process, Anna said the movement would have to restart if Parliament fails to pass a strong Lokpal Bill.

Rest at,
