Social activist Anna Hazare Apr 13 (PTI) Ahmedabad: Social activist Anna Hazare has said he is pained that he has to explain himself time and again on Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, whom he had praised for developmental efforts.

“Let me at the outset say that I am totally apolitical and strongly against communalism,” Hazare said in a letter to danseuse and activist Mallika Sarabhai yesterday.

The anti-graft crusader was reacting to Sarabhai’s e-mail expressing her shock at the former endorsing Modi.

“I am pained that I have to explain myself on Mr Modi. I was asked about Gujarat and Bihar Chief Ministers’ development work in the press conference held in Delhi, and based on media reports I said Bihar and Gujarat have done good work in rural development,” the Gandhian wrote from his native village Ralegan Siddhi in Maharashtra’s Ahmednagar district.
