It is the right thing to do. And our honorable CM acted promptly without delaying. Seeing Central government bestows Bharata Ratna to our Balu makes his fans feel that SPB achievements are recognized and respected by India officially with highest award. Our pain of not seeing his smiling face will be there for ever but at the same time our hearts are filled with pride.
