UP ignored in Padma awards, says Ram Gopal Yadav


Senior Samajwadi Party leader Ram Gopal Yadav today alleged that Uttar Pradesh had been repeatedly ignored while deciding on the recipients of Padma awards.

"UP contributes for around 20 per cent of the nation's population, but when it comes to deciding Padma awardees, the state is always ignored," Yadav said at a function here on the occasion of the Republic Day.

The SP leader said the state has played an important role in the nation's independence and has given some top politicians to the country.

"Until people of Uttar Pradesh are not included in the committee for the awards, the state will continue to face discrimination," he said.
