Social activist Anna Hazare said that both Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi and Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi are "unacceptable" as prime ministerial candidates.

"Both Modi and Rahul Gandhi are unacceptable to me for prime ministership as both are not fit to take over the dignified and respected post," Hazare said.

Hazare, who was in Farrukhabad, Uttar Pradesh on Friday to participate in his 'Jantantra Yatra', said that in the past ten years of his being the chief minister of Gujarat, Modi created hurdles in setting up Lokayukta, which only goes on to stress his views that appointment of anti-graft ombudsman was not required to bring an end to corruption.

Hazare said that Rahul Gandhi was also not the right candidate for the post of prime minister.

Saying that corruption and wrongdoings are the result of party politics in the country, Hazare said that his Jankranti Morcha was trying to bring six crore dedicated workers together and with their help launch the second innings of struggle for the Jan Lokpal at Delhi's Jantar Mantar in December.

To a question on norms for poverty, Hazare said that those sitting in air-conditioned offices cannot rightly evaluate poverty. "Rs. 33 cannot provide meal to one mouth," he added.
