The Supreme Court on Friday nudged a petition seeking to confer Mahatma Gandhi with Bharat Ratna, India’s highest civilian award, stating that Gandhi, the Father of the Nation is “much higher than the Bharat Ratna”. “We agree with you and respect your sentiment, but it is a matter of policy,” a bench headed by Chief Justice SA Bobde told the petitioner.
