Did Anna Hazare touch Sonia Gandhi’s feet ?

Spread the truth:

A Photo is viral showing a man touching Congress Leader Sonia Gandhi’s feet, claiming to be Aocial activist Anna Hazare with text claiming he is working with Congress to destabilize BJP Government.



Vivek Bansal (Columnist | Traveller | Ex-Media Consultant to Minister, Ministry of Environment (GoI) | Founder ) raised a query for confirmation if the man is Anna.


In the rally, Loans on farmers were waived and were given a “No Due Certificate”, which obviously made farmers happy because of which they touched feet as respect. The man in photo is one of the farmers taking blessings of Sonia Gandhi and Union Home Minister, Shivraj Patil during the ‘Women and Farmers rally’ at Loni village, near Shirdi in Ahmednagar on June 19, 2008.

Check the face of the same man below, he doesn’t look like Anna Hazare at all.
