Social activist Anna Hazare's health is improving after his 288-hour fast from Aug 16 and his vital parameters are stable, a doctor attending on him said om Wednesday.

The 74-year-old activist has started to take soft solid foods like rice and dal, said the doctor.

"Three days after breaking his 12-day fast, Hazare's health is improving. He is now taking some soft solid foods like idli, rice and dal. His blood pressure is 141/90 which is normal and he is showing good signs of improvement," said Yatin Mehta, one of the doctors monitoring Hazare's condition at Medanta Medicity, Gurgaon.

Hazare broke his 12-day fast against corruption Sunday morning after parliament Saturday evening agreed in principle to accept his three demands for a stronger Lokpal bill. He was admitted to the hospital the same day.

"He has not started the complete diet, but he is having some soft food like rice and his vital parameters are stable," Mehta said.

"We are constantly monitoring him. As of now, he is in complete rest, but he is now meeting some of his close associates for a few hours," he added.

A team of doctors is keeping a close watch over Hazare, he said.
