Gogoi for Bharat Ratna to Bhupen Da

Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi strongly recommends Bharat Ratna for Dr Bhupen Hazarika.

Sources told Assam Times that in his recent letter to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Gogoi requested him to confer the country's highest civilian honour to the cultural icon posthumously.

Gogoi will personally take up the matter with Modi. Gogoi moved the then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on the matter in 2011. But it went unheard.
