After Saina Nehwal orders a Padma Bhushan, others join the bandwagon
After the requests to the Government from badminton ace Saina Nehwal and boxer Vijender Singh, cricketers Ashish Nehra and Dodda Ganesh have also shown interest in receiving the Padma Bhushan.
They mentioned that their consistent performances for the country deserved recognition from the government.Both claimed that they have served their time and should have received the award by now.
Dodda quoted Sachin Tendulkar, then captain of India, that he was not even aware of who I was when the board selected me in the team. It shows how much faith the administration had in me.
Nehra commented that he had served the nation with his Tan and Man and earned some Dhan. He was so passionate about the sport that even thinking about taking a catch would injure him, a fact that no doctor has been able to understand yet.
Farzi News’s sources also received information that Rohit Sharma was also planning to apply for the award based on his ‘talent’.
Our analysts predict that the Great Khali and veteran actor Puru Rajkumar might also be applying for the award going forward.
Will the government start a pre-ordering service is yet to be seen.
