Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Mohan Yadav hailed the Union government’s decision on Saturday to confer the Bharat Ratna, the country’s highest civilian award, to BJP stalwart LK Advani, saying his guidance led to the peaceful resolution of the Ram Temple issue.
Yadav also thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who earlier in the day announced that Advani (96) would be bestowed with the Bharat Ratna.
“This is a matter of happiness. We have seen him working in various capacities. We thank Modiji. We know the various stages of Advaniji’s life. During the Emergency, he was a fighter for democracy,” Yadav said.
