Sachin deserves Bharat Ratna: Anna Hazare

Posted By: Ria
New Delhi, May 3: The anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare criticised Congress-led UPA government's decision for nominating Indian cricket player Sachin Tendulkar to the Rajya Sabha seat and not awarded him Bharat Ratna.

Anna told reporters, "I feel bad because we are demanding that Sachin should have been facilitated from Bharat Ratna."

"There (Government) intention is not clear behind this (electing Sachin Tendulkar for Rajya Sabha). If they wanted to honour him, then they could have honoured him with Bharat Ratna," said Anna.

Meanwhile, Anna is on a state-wide tour to campaign for a strong lokpal bill in Maharashtra.
