New Delhi: Welcoming ending of fast by Anna
Hazare, Congress on Sunday said it is a "win-win situation" for
all stakeholders.

"It`s a historic occasion because it is a win-win
situation for Indian democracy and for all stakeholders,"
party spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi said.

On a question whether the government had to "bow down"
under pressure from civil society, Singhvi said there are
occasions in history when "we have to move away from binary
win-loss equations".

Singhvi said, "We should applaud the fact that all
participants rose to the occasion to engage in constructive
and concrete nitty-gritty of law making first before the
standing committee and then again before Parliament".
