If you are watching News Channels these days you will probably find that there is no other news than the Writers returning their Sahitya Akademi Awards in protest against the Modi Government, and many issues like the Indo African Summit are not being given its due importance. Well it seems like this is not the first time Congress is making pressure on famous personalities to do so, here is a news article which was published on the NDTV website back in November 2013 which exposes the reality of Congress:
The Mumbai Congress chief Janardan Chandurkar wanted legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar’s stripped of her Bharat Ratna after her public endorsement of Narendra Modi’s candidature for India’s prime ministership.
“Lata Mangeshkar’s Bharat Ratna should be taken away as she has endorsed Narendra Modi. We should take back the Padma awards of all those who support Narendra Modi,” Mr Chandurkar said, without naming any Padma awardee.
“Narendrabhai is like my brother. All of us want to see him become the Prime Minister. On the auspicious occasion of Diwali, I hope our wishes would come true,” Ms Mangeshkar had said earlier this month at a function in Pune after the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate inaugurated a hospital named after the singer’s father, Deenanath Mangeshkar.
The 84-year-old singer was awarded the Bharat Ratna in 2001.
