Dear Prime Minister @narendramodi , Milkha Singh defied all odds to become the sportsman he did. He remained an inspiration to billions of Indians. His family and he are the epitome of what India stands for. MILKHA SINGH DESERVES TO GET THE BHARAT RATNA. Because he truly was.

The greatest of all time in the history of Indian athletics.
This man deserves Bharat Ratna

Still don't know why Milkha singh ji, Dhyan chand ji and Vishwanathan anand sir do not have bharat ratna.

For a legend like Milkha Singh, a posthumous Bharat Ratna is something I'll find hard to endorse. He deserved it much earlier, and before many others. It was only yesterday that I knew India has kept him just at Padma Shri.
Rest in Power, Legend ! https://t.co/J5bCqkkbnW
