More than 10 days after his no-holds-barred attack against Anna Hazare, Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari on Thursday apologised to the social activist.

"I know some of my recent statements have caused hurt to Hazare. I regret the same and I would like to appeal to him as a citizen of this country to end his fast. In the course of political activities, certain things are inadvertently said, which cause pain," Tewari said.

On August 14, the Congress had called a special press briefing to reply to Hazare's strongly-worded letter to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

Tewari had said: "The Sawant Commission ripped apart the moral core of Hazare as it found him steeped in corruption from head to toe". He also called his team "A Company".
