`Team Anna members always wanted to be in power`
Chennai: Congress continued to take potshots at Team Anna for stating that it is considering a political alternative, saying the members always wanted to be in power.
Senior Congress leader and Union Shipping Minister G K Vasan said his party had been saying it for the past one year.
"The Congress party has been continuously telling for past one year that Anna (Hazare) and his team is interested in politics and they always wanted to be in power," he told reporters here.
He however added that anyone had the right to form a political party in a democracy like India.
Team Anna had on Thursday indicated coming out with a political alternative, with Information and Broadcasting Mnister Ambica Soni expressing happiness that the team`s intention had "come in the open," even as senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh had taken jibes at them.
