Padma award hereafter be called
‘People’s Padma’ ?
PM Modi’s tweet laudable by many……
Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s tweet in regard to Padma Awards was highly laudable by many as his thought is quite correct. PM Modi stated in a tweet ” India has many talented people, who are doing exceptional work at the grassroots. Often we don’t see or hear much of them”. Prime Minister urged the people to nominate the inspiring people whom they know for them #People’s Padma, a prestigious civilian honour.
The Centre has been committed to transforming the Padma awards into “People’s Padma” . All state governments were asked by the center to set up a committee to find out prospective people who have been so far left without recognition for their exceptional services. The Modi Government since its inception has conferred the Padma awards on many unsung heroes who contributed to society in different ways.
Earlier the Home Ministry called for online nominations or recommendations for the awards, setting September 15 as the last date for nominations. The awards will be announced on the eve of Republic Day,2022. It seems here after the Padma awards may be called “People’s Padma award”
