Former Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said late seer of the Siddaganga Mutt,late Dr.Shivakumar Swamiji has all the qualities to receive the Bharat Ratna posthumously and Prime Minister Narendra Modi is being pressurised to get the seer the country’s highest civilian award .

When the media persons asked about the demand from Deputy Chief Minister D.K.Shivakumar for conferring the Bharat Ratna award for the late seer,the BJP said even before Shivakumar demanded the highest civilian award for the seer,there had been demand in this regard.

Why the seer was not conferred the Bharat Ratna when the Congress led UPA Government was in power? The UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi has visited the Siddaganga Mutt and why it was not given by her? The BJP has been demanding in this regard, he added
