Delhi High Court Rejects Plea Seeking ‘Bharat Ratna’ For Ratan Tata

New Delhi: The High Court today refused entertaining a Public Interest Litigation, seeking direction to the central government for awarding Leading Industrialists Ratan Tata with Bharat Ratna.

It was not for the court to direct the authorities to award the highest civilian honour to a person, stated a bench headed by Acting Chief Justice Vipin Sanghi.

“What kind of a petition is this? Is this for the court to direct (the government to award Bharat Ratna),” said the bench also comprising Justice Navin Chawla.

The counsel of petition requested the court to at least make an appeal to the government regarding the award.

“Go make the request. Where is the question of the court stepping in?,” said the Acting Chief Justice.

The petition was withdrawn by the counsel of courts, after hearing from court that they would dismiss it with costs.

The petitioner – Rakesh, who claimed to be a social worker, said in his plea that Ratan Tata deserves Bharat Ratna as he is serving the nation and has an unblemished life.

He has led an exemplary life inspiring millions of career aspirants around the globe and has proved to be an excellent leader and a business owner, the petition said.
