New Delhi: Cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar’s name has been recommended for Bharat Ratna by the Prime Minister’s Office, sources have told.
However, sources also add that there is some reservation on conferring Bharat Ratna on Tendulkar as he is considered too young for the highest civilian award of the country.
Those opposing his name also say that as the maestro received Padma Vibhushan just two years back and it may be too early for a Bharat Ratna.
At a function in Mumbai the batting maestro stayed away from the issue, saying Bharat Ratna is the dream of every Indian.
Sources also say that VVS Laxman has been awarded the Padma Shree.
