AP CM YS Jagan Mohan Reddy wrote letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking Bharat Ratna for the legendary singer. In the letter sent to PM Modi on Monday, YS Jagan said that SP Balasubrahnamyam deserves country’s highest civilian honour as he has sung more than 40000 songs across various Indian languages and entertained and inspired Indians across all age groups.
Millions of SP Balu fans have been demanding Central Government to honour SPB with Bharatratna since his death, last week. Echoing with public spirit and mood, AP CM YS Jagan wrote letter to PM Modi and took the issue to Centre’s notice.
SP Balasubrahnamyam has already been honoured with Padmashri and Padmabhushan awards in the past. He was won innumerable awards from various state governments, NGOs and cultural and social organisations in his lifetime.
