Letter to BS: 'Opportunist' Cong is demanding Bharat Ratna for Bhagat Singh

Of course, it is a different matter that while the same party was in power at the Centre, this idea never dawned on their "nationalist" leadership

Bhagat Singh

The Congress’ demand for Bharat Ratna for the revolutionaries Bhaghat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev is a clever ruse by the party to divert public attention from a similar demand by the Bharatiya Janata Party for the highest civilian honour to be conferred upon V D Savarkar. This is one of the ways through which the 134-year-old party is trying to showcase its “secular” credentials. Of course, it is a different matter that while the same party was in power at the Centre, this idea never dawned on their “nationalist” leadership.
