New Delhi: Accusing Team Anna of playing
into the hands of BJP, Union Minister Subodh Kant Sahai on Wednesday
said irrespective of the activists` anti-graft campaign,
Congress is committed to a strong Lokpal.

"BJP is trying to sail its boat through Team Anna. But
Team Anna itself is not capable of doing that...," Sahai said
at the sidelines of a function here.

"Anna Hazare is playing into certain political parties
including BJP and speaking their language. Hazare claims
himself to be a Gandhian so he should have at least control on
his language," the Tourism Minister said.

Reiterating Congress` stand, Sahai said, "Whatever they
want to say let them say. But this is a commitment of the
Congress party to have a strong Lokpal and our leadership,
whether Soniaji or Rahul Gandhi, is equally committed to it."
