Ratan Tata has urged people to refrain from demanding the Bharat Ratna for him. The Chairman Emeritus of the over USD 100 billion conglomerate Tata group asked social media users to stop the campaign that asked the government to confer on him the highest civilian award of the country.

“While I appreciate the sentiments expressed by a section of the social media in terms of an award, I would humbly like to request that such campaigns be discontinued,” Tata said in a tweet.

He was reacting to various users on Twitter lauding him for his contributions, especially in inspiring the youth with #BharatRatnaForRatanTata trending.

“Instead, I consider myself fortunate to be an Indian and to try and contribute to India’s growth and prosperity,” he added.
