"I don't know anything about the Padma Bhushan. No one has told me anything about it. If indeed they have given me the Padma Bhushan, then I reject it," Bhattacharjee said in a statement originally in Bengali.

Ramesh also went on to tweet a passage from a book about former bureaucrat, P N Haskar who had refused the award.

It is a classic, and worthy of emulation," Ramesh said.
