Oppose Sharad Pawar's Padma Vibhushan

This petition had 163 supporters

Mr Sharad Pawar has been nominated to receive the Padma Vibhushan award which is one of India's highest civilian awards. Mr Pawar, through his career in Indian politics, has been named in several cases of corruption. It does not matter whether the cases have been proven or not; any person with an iota of honour will stand aside till proven innocent. Prime Minister Mr Narendra Modi has in the past referred to Mr Pawar's party as corrupt. At this point in time when Mr Modi has vowed to root out corruption, how can the government allow this?

To reward anyone with even a charge of corruption, criminal offence or any misdemeanour would mean rewarding these acts. And when it comes to awarding the Padma Vibhushan, such an act would be an insult to India.
