Bangalore: Legendary athlete Milkha Singh on Thursday said Dhyanchand also deserves the Bharat Ratna and that the government should honour the hockey legend.
"Dhyan Chand deserves Bharat Ratna. Such a sportsman has never been born in India. The award has been given to Sachin...it's okay. Nevertheless, they should think about Dhyan Chand immediately," Milkha said here.
Retired batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar became the first sportsperson to receive the country's highest civilian award, Bharat Ratna.
