New Delhi: Congress on Tuesday refused to attach
significance to Team Anna`s reported decision not to campaign
against any party in Assembly elections in five states saying
they are free to support or oppose any political party.

"They can do that. They have right to do what they want
to. Congress is not concerned with the decision taken by Team
Anna. If they want to oppose any party, they may oppose. If
they want to support any party, they may also do that," party
spokesperson Rashid Alvi told reporters here.

His comments came a day after Team Anna`s Core Committee
met at Ghaziabad yesterday amid suggestions that the anti-
corruption movement should not target a single political party
in future.
It left the final decision to Anna Hazare, who did not
attend the meeting due to poor health.

Earlier, Team Anna was accused of targeting Congress in
its campaign.

This was the first meeting of the Team after Hazare called
off his agitation programmes for a strong Lokpal last month.
It came amidst "confusion" in Team Anna on how to take the
movement forward.
