Today Milkha Singh told: Dhyan Chand deserved Bharat Ratna before Sachin Tendulkar. Recently Sachin Tendulkar has been awarded with Bharat Ratna.

He said: I am very happy that the doors have opened for sportspersons. But I think the first Bharat Ratna should have been given to Dhyan Chand because of what he has achieved. I am not against Sachin getting the award but Dhyan Chand deserved it first.

A sportsperson is a nation's ambassador when they go to participate in the Olympics, so they should also be given these awards. Dhyan Chand passed away long back but we should not forget what he has done for the country. You must understand that to get an Olympic medal is a huge achievement.
