Social activist Anna Hazare on Friday said he neither praised Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi nor did he say that Modi is "not communal."
"I did not say that Modi is not communal. I said that I cannot say he is communal because I don´t have any evidence," Hazare said.
He said Modi is leading a party (the Bharatiya Janata Party) which is communal so that makes him communal too.
On Wednesday, the Gandhian was quoted as saying that there was no evidence of Modi being "communal".
He, however, clarified on Friday that he has never "praised Modi".
