Hazare broke his fast on Sunday after parliament agreed in principle to his demands that all government officials would come under a new anti-graft law currently being drafted and to a citizens’ charter promoting accountability.

Trehan told reporters Hazare, who drank just water during his fast, would soon be put on a fruit diet.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s government struggled to respond to Hazare’s campaign, which tapped into deep resentment among many Indians, who routinely have to pay bribes for everything from college admission to death certificates.
