    Dude see the history of Bharat Ratna and Congress Government.

    Congress PM's have given Bharat Ratna to themselves.....can you believe that a person finds himself better than others..:lol: :lol:


    Atlest ABV never gave Bharat Ratna to himself when he was in power.

    Vajpayee was a great man- a man of impeccable integrity. But he alligned with the wrong movement and paid the price with an inexcusable moral failure- the inability to act during gujarat riots. Alas what should have been a glorious career will be forever tarnished.

    Nehru Chacha. :lol:

    PM has an special discretion to award Bharat Ratna. Nehru gave it to himself when he was PM. I guess Indira did the same.

    Same with Man Mohan Singh. He joined the wrong party which did the greatest scams in Indian history and is now paying the price. His image is highly tarnished. Alas he might have been better in any other party. His political career is doomed.

    Will you accept wiki or need some other source??

    Bharat Ratna - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Nehru got in 55 when he as PM. Indira took it in 71.

    Maulana Azad denied because he was in selection committee.

    That article doesn't say anything about the "discretionary power" of PM to award Bharat Ratna. Do you know the selection procedure for awarding Bharat Ratna?

    My bad

    Caveat on Bharat Ratna - Opinion - DNA

    Book: The Last days of Sardar Patel by Vijay tendulkar Page 4


    Selection Procedure: Sorry I was wrong on using the word "Discretion". However PM do from a part of selection committee with special Privilege. (The fact that he is the PM)

    One is a founding father & first PM of the state- India's equivalent of George Washington. And the other--we'll cut an agressor nation into two. I don't see anything wrong with either getting a bharat ratna. In fact, though ABV is a great man, he really is no match for JN or IG.

    Nehru is the first PM and not a founding father. Other than that I agree to all part. But that doesnt change the fact that awarded BR to themselves and hence making a joke of BR.
