'Unfair to compare me with Gandhi'

delhi Updated: Apr 10, 2011 18:19 IST

Gandhian Anna Hazare on Sunday said it was unfair to compare him with the 'Father of the Nation', Mahatma Gandhi.

"It is unfair to compare me with Gandhiji. I am not even worthy to sit near his feet. He was a barrister and I am less educated," he told reporters in New Delhi.

Many people termed Hazare the 'Modern Gandhi' and the 'Second Gandhi' as he sat on a 97 hour fast-unto-death to press for a stringent anti-graft law.
