Bharat Ratna trend started on Twitter after Suhel Seth demanded Bharat Ratna for ninth Prime Minister of India, P V Narasimha Rao. He tweeted, “It’s an absolute shame that to this day, P V Narasimha Rao, who changed the economic history of India has still not been awarded a posthumous Bharat Ratna. Only because he was independent and not a family serf. At least this Government needs to set things right!” Prior to him, KCR had also rooted for Bharat Ratna for P V Narasimha Rao back in 2014. The day marks P V Narasimha Rao’s birth anniversary.
Apart from P V Narasimha Rao, Twitterati also suggested Field Marshal Sam Maneckshaw’s name for Bharat Ratna. June 27, 2020, marked Padma Vibhushan and Padma Bhushan Sam Maneckshaw’s 12th death anniversary.
