Congress yesterday commented on the letters issued by Team Anna saying that, “no self-appointed preachers and guardians of political morals have a right to lecture the entire political class.” Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi said, “I do want to make a point that no self-appointed preachers and guardians of the political morals have a right to lecture, or preach to the entire political class across the board in letters or otherwise.”

He also said,” This preaching tone, this know-it all know tone” and the approach of treating the entire political spectrum as irresponsible “is shocking distrust of the democracy.”

On Sunday Team Anna issued letters to various leaders including Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Rahul Gandhi, Mayawati, Mulayam Singh Yadav, and many more seeking their stand on Lokpal issue. No one else has yet replied back to the letters.
