In the backdrop of Team Anna's barbs at Members of Parliament, Congress leader Digvijay Singh on Tuesday accused its members of trying to become "power brokers".

"I feel that members of Team Anna do not have any faith in democracy and yet they want to become power brokers without going through elections," Singh told reporters.

He further said that most members of the team had "dubious credentials and lacked moral authority".

"It was because of all this that team (Anna) members were abusing Parliament and parliamentarians," he said.

The Congress general secretary also said that it had become "apparent" that Team Anna members had absolutely no faith either in democracy or democratic institutions.

"One of the team members, Arvind Kejriwal, had during his service flouted rules with total impunity. Similarly, another team member Kiran Bedi had used concessional tickets to fly and when this happened, she was not worried about morality or any such thing," Singh claimed.

Sharpening his attack further, the senior Congress leader said, "The BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) became disenchanted with Anna Hazare the day he refused to take the support of RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh)".

"In my view, BJP is a party with at least three faces. The party has one face when it is in power, another when in opposition...but in reality it is a truly commercial party in all ways," he alleged.

When asked about Army Chief General V K Singh's allegations that he was offered a bribe of Rs 14 crore, Singh said that the general should have filed a FIR in this regard.

"Since a CBI inquiry has been ordered into the matter, I do not want to say anything further on it," he said.

When told that photographs of former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee would be displayed in all government schools in Madhya Pradesh, he said, "I have no objection if Vajpayee's picture is displayed along with those of other great leaders".
