New Delhi: With the attack on media by its supporters leaving Team Anna red-faced, the Congress on Tuesday took a dig at the activists telling them that they required democratic disposition to take media criticism in their stride.
"I leave it to the media to draw their own conclusions as they are the best judges as they are at the receiving end...there should be democratic disposition to take media criticism in its stride," Congress spokesman Manish Tewari told reporters in New Delhi.
Asked whether Team Anna was gradually turning into a political organisation ahead of the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, he said that the activists should come out in the open in the "rough and tumble of politics" instead of acting behind the scenes.
A scuffle had broken out between Team Anna supporters and mediapersons on Monday night at Jantar Mantar.
