With Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy already writing to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to confer Bharat Ratna on S P Balasubrahmanyam, South Indian Film Chamber is now going ahead with the cause.
Katragadda Prasad, the president of South Indian Film Chamber, said they are planning on getting letters from the Chief Ministers of all the southern States to request the Union government to confer Bharat Ratna on the late singer Balasubrahmanyam.
“Already one CM, Jagan Mohan Reddy garu from Andhra Pradesh has sent a letter. We are getting letters from Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu (a request has already been made) and Telangana,” he said at a memorial prayer meet for SPB.
“Bharat Ratna is not a big thing for his image or his achievements. National Awards, doctorates from so many universities, all state awards… So many awards, we cannot count or even remember them all. He deserves,” Prasad added.
