New Delhi, April 9 (IANS) “I am nowhere near him,” Gandhian activist Anna Hazare said Saturday when he was compared with Mahatma Gandhi.

“I am inspired by the thoughts of Gandhiji,” he added, addressing a press conference at the house of former police officer Kiran Bedi.

Hazare, who ended a five-day hunger strike earlier Saturday, said Indians were fed up with corruption.

This is the reason, he said, why people came in such large numbers and supported his campaign against corruption.
