Jagjit Singh deserves Bharat Ratna, says his widow Chitra Singh

Jagjit-Singh-deserves-BharaChitra Singh, wife of late ghazal maestro Jagjit Singh, continued her lone battle to get her husband the country’s highest civilian honour Bharat Ratna.

Chitra said, “I think he deserves the Bharat Ratna, no less. The country must give him his due. Manmohan Singh-ji released two commemorative stamps onFebruary 8 of Jagjit-ji. That was okay. But what about the recognition that Jagjit Saab deserves”.

Chitra Singh, who herself was a renowned singer during 70’s and 80’s, had been constantly persuading the Indian government for many years in this regard.

She says, “They gave Jagjit-ji the Padma Bhushan in 2003. Eleven years have passed since. Every year we expected him to get the Bharat Ratna”.
