Team Anna has called for "grand celebrations" at India Gate Sunday evening to celebrate "people's victory" as Anna Hazare broke his 12-day fast after parliament broadly agreed to meet three key demands of his civil society group to battle corruption.

"We appeal to all the people present here to come to India Gate in the evening where we will celebrate our republic," Hazare's close confidant Arvind Kejriwal told the cheering crowds at Ramlila Maidan.

Tens of thousands of people celebrated as Hazare took a sip of coconut water and honey mixture offered by two girls to end his over 288-hour fast in the morning.
