The Lok Sabha on Tuesday condemned Anna Hazare and his team for using derogatory language against MPs but stopped short of censuring them.

"Parliament reflects the country's collective view. Any remark lowering the dignity of the august house is totally unacceptable," Speaker Meira Kumar said at the end of a short debate.

Contrary to indications on Monday, Lok Sabha didn't adopt a resolution against Team Anna. Instead, Kumar summed up the sense of the House without naming anyone.

The debate began with MPs - across party lines - attacking Team Anna. This gave way to hectic consultations between parties, after which the House decided on issuing just a warning.

The BJP brought its aggression several notches down after a section apparently argued that Team Anna was targeting the Congress and therefore, the opposition party shouldn't confront it directly.
