Ahmednagar:  After an overwhelming reception on his homecoming in Ralegan Siddhi here, anti-corruption activist Anna Hazare on Thursday said he was recovering fast.

"I am feeling well...recovering fast and am grateful to all who are wishing for my good health," Hazare, who is taking rest at the Bhakta Niwas in Padmavati temple at his native village, told reporters.

The 73-year-old Gandhian will take rest on Thursday and will interact with the people and the media on Friday, his personal assistant said.

Hazare arrived here in the early hours following his discharge from a Gurgaon hospital where he had been undergoing treatment after breaking his 12-day fast on the Lokpal issue. 

A 'gram bhojan' has been organized for 10,000 people by the villagers on Friday in view to celebrate Anna's "victorious" return.

The assistant said a meeting of Team Anna, including Arvind Kejriwal and Kiran Bedi, is scheduled on September 10 and 11 here to discuss the further course of action on the Lokpal Bill.
