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".
