Kolkata: The Padma Awards 2022 have been announced on the eve of Republic Day. This time the most shocking name in this list of awards is that of former Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharya. The government has announced to confer the Padma Bhushan on him. But Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee has refused to accept the award.

Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee said- I am denying it
Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee’s statement has come after the announcement of Padma awards. He has refused to take it. He said in his statement, ‘I do not know anything about the Padma Bhushan award. Nobody told me about it. If I have been given the Padma Bhushan, I am rejecting it. Earlier, his party’s Rajya Sabha MP and Communist Party of India (Marxist) leader Bikash Bhattacharya had also said that it is fake. As far as I know, this award will not be accepted by him.

Bhattacharya, who was a member of the CPM Politburo, has been as vocal about PM Narendra Modi as Mamata Banerjee. Before the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, he had said that if Modi becomes the PM then it will be very dangerous for the country.

Former West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee was called by the Home Secretary in the morning. His wife picked up the phone as he was ill. If he had to refuse, he had enough time.
