New Delhi: The Lok Sabha is likely to consider a censure motion against anti-graft activist Anna Hazare and his team members, asking them to refrain from using derogatory language against members of Parliament.

The censure motion, if adopted and voted in favour by a majority in the house, would mean that Team Anna members would be criticised but won't be called to the house unlike under a privilege motion.

The Lok Sabha sources said National Democratic Alliance (NDA) convenor Sharad Yadav, who heads the Janata Dal-United (JD-U), has already given the notice to Speaker Meira Kumar.

The sources said that the Opposition and ruling benches had joined hands on the issue; if moved, it would be one of rare occasions when both sides would be voting in favour of the same motion.

"It condemns derogatory remarks by Team Anna members against parliamentarians," said a source in the know of Sharad Yadav's notice.

The notice will be taken up around 5 p.m. for a vote after a brief debate. On Monday, many MPs cutting across party lines asked the speaker to move a resolution condemning what they said were unsavoury remarks by members of Hazare's team during their renewed anti-corruption agitation at Jantar Mantar on Sunday. The man in the eye of the storm is key member Arvind Kejriwal who had said that the Parliament was facing a credibility crisis with 162 sitting MPs facing criminal charges. He also said some MPs were thieves and rapists.
