After a sustained campaign against the Congress before the Hisar Lok Sabha bypoll by civil society members, Anna Hazare on Friday gave the party and government a breather.

He announced postponement of his anti-Congress yatra in Uttar Pradesh to the end of the winter session of Parliament.

"Anna won't say anything now. He will wait for the winter session to get over. Let's see if the Congress brings the bill," Team Anna's Arvind Kejriwal said.

However, other team members will tour UP from Monday.

The decision came on a day that saw Team Anna in turmoil over the remarks of two members, Prashant Bhushan and justice Santosh Hegde.

Hazare expressed unhappiness over Bhushan's statement on holding a referendum in Kashmir and distanced the team from it.

"Kashmir is an integral part of India. Bhushan's views are in his personal capacity," he said.

In a separate development, justice Hegde said the anti-Congress campaign in Hisar was "not the right thing to do" and that the Hazare movement "is and should be apolitical".
