GUWAHATI, Jan 25 � Education Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma today said that the conferring of the Padma Vibhushan on music legend Dr Bhupen Hazarika was by no means a denial of the Bharat Ratna for him.

Many circles in the State have been calling for bestowal of Bharat Ratna � the country�s highest civilian honour � on the maestro.

Addressing the media, Sarma said that the Centre�s bestowal of the highest Padma award on Dr Hazarika should not be construed as negating the prospects of his selection for Bharat Ratna.

�As far as my knowledge goes, recipients of these two honours are selected by different panels, and in any case, conferment of the Padma Vibhushan does not imply that the same person cannot be a candidate for Bharat Ratna,� he said.
