Yash Bharti award to Abhishek Bachchan 'unreasonable': Joshi
Varanasi, Nov 20 (UNI) Former Union Minister and senior BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi today said the Uttar Pradesh government's decision to confer the coveted Yash Bharti Samman to Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan was ''unreasonable.'' The award should only be conferred upon literary personalities and not be given to any film personality, he said, saying that confering the award on Abhishek Bachchan was ''unwarranted and unreasonable.'' When queried about the relationship of top brass of UP government and the Bachchan family, the former BJP president laughed it off, saying there were many idioms in Hindi which could perfectly describe such a relationship.
