Manish Tiwari and Anna Hazare
New Delhi, Aug 25: Days after his controversial statement on Anna Hazare, Congress spokesperson, Manish Tiwari on Thursday, Aug 25 apologised to the Gandhian crusader when the entire nation started chanting Anna's name for India Against Corruption movement.

Manish Tiwari, had earlier lashed back at Anna Hazare in a press conference on Aug 14 by calling Anna 'corrupt'.

Backfiring the Gandhian crusader, he had said that a Supreme Court judge also called Anna's fast illegal, further adding that his fast was not for the Lokpal Bill or against corruption.

"Anna Hazare has violated basic courtesy and has a lot to answer," Tiwari had said earlier.

He had further said that Justice Sawant Commission report on corruption also named Anna Hazare and asked why he did not respond to the charges. Congress also said that Anna's birthday celebration by his trust was illegal and Anna himself was corrupt.

Tiwari continuing his attack on Anna, had stated, "The Sawant Commission ripped apart the moral core of Hazare as it found him steeped in corruption from head to toe." However, the Congress party later had taken a U-turn by calling a "Hero".
