New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has hailed the triumph of the common man and the maturity of Parliamentary democracy and said contemporary developments will usher in progress for the nation.
"Today what we are seeing at Ramlila is a new sense of acknowledgment for the common man," BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar said Sunday. "Ultimately it will usher in a new era of rapid progress."
Anna Hazare, 74, ended 13 days of fasting at the Ramlila Grounds on Sunday after reassurance from Parliament and the government that the three key demands of his anti-graft group would be incorporated in the proposed Lokpal Bill.
He further said: "Yesterday what we saw was the best element of Parliament and the nation will be really happy with the level of debate and sincerity of purpose. This is the beauty of democracy."
The BJP spokesperson said the protest at Ramlila Grounds was not a middle-class movement, as perceived, but a mass movement with many coming from villages to participate.
