Continuing its attack on Anna Hazare ahead of Wednesday's meeting of the joint committee to draft lokpal bill, Congress on Tuesday said it was not democratic that one person tries to impose his views and only Parliament and assemblies can debate what laws should be made.

"It is not democratic that one person tries to impose his views on everybody. This cannot go on that any person rises and starts dictating that this should happen and this should not,"," AICC general secretary Janardan Dwivedi told reporters in New Delhi.

He said a decision would be taken in a democracy only through public opinion and the debate on what bill should or should not be made can take place "only in Parliament and Assemblies" which represent people and are elected bodies.

Dwivedi also said people should put aside their "personal egos" to work in national interest.

Dwivedi said the party is in agreement with the views of Pranab Mukherjee on the issue as "after all there is a way in which democracy could function and there is a process for taking decisions. Democracy cannot function in an arbitrary manner. What will happen if tomorrow some civil society members say they do not accept results of assembly elections."
