'Karmaveer' Bhaurao Patil

Mumbai: Maharashtra minister and state NCP chief Jayant Patil on Sunday reiterated his party’s demand that Bhaurao Patil, popularly addressed as ‘Karmaveer,’ be bestowed with the Bharat Ratna, the country’s highest civilian honour.

The NCP leader wrote to the prime minister on Sunday with the demand, his letter mentioning that Patil worked all his life to ensure education for the children from the deprived sections of society through his Rayat Shikshan Sanstha.

The Sanstha celebrated its centenary in 2019 and the NCP minister said it would be a tribute to the legendary social reformer if he is conferred with the Bharat Ratna.

He had written a letter on the same lines on May 9, 2018, as well.

In a tweet on Sunday, the NCP minister tagged the prime minister and said, ”I had made the demand three years ago. I request the prime minister to take a decision.”
