Bharat Ratna sought for Dr YS Parmar



Shimla (July 26): All Himachal People Conference, a social advocacy body, has asked the state government to seek Bharat Ratna award for Dr Y S Parmar, the first CM of the state, for his efforts, service and contribution towards development of the state.

President of the organization, senior advocate of HP high court I D Bali while addressing media persons on Tuesday said, “The decision of Himachal Pradesh University (HPU) VC to establish a chair in memory of Dr Parmar is welcomed, whose farsightedness and vision had led to carving of own hilly state and granting it full-fledged statehood, but we would like the government to geek the highest award of the country for the great leader.”

Stokes, or many of our freedom movements, just because they did not carry a Medellin stating that they are Bharat Ratna holders. lets grow out of these shibboleths of pretension, and fanning those passions that are not a part of our nature through such populist drama
