PM to recommend Sachin for Bharat Ratna

New Delhi, Jan 25: According to sources, Indian Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh will personally meet with President Pratibha Patil to recommend batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar for the country's highest civilian award - the Bharat Ratna.

The Little Master could thus become the first sportsman in the history of India to be conferred the prestigious award. Speaking to newspersons in Mumbai on Jan 25, Sachin said that it would indeed be an honour to receive the Bharat Ratna.

There have been calls from several quarters for Tendulkar to be bestowed with the honour after he became the first man on the planet to reach 200 runs in a one-day international and in the same year, notch up 50 Test centuries.
