Madikeri: Field Marshal Kodandera M. Cariappa’s name will be recommended for Bharat Ratna, said Chief Minister Siddharamaiah. He was speaking to reporters at Madikeri on Tuesday after addressing “Sadhana Samavesha.”

It may be recalled here that on Nov.4, Chief of the Army Staff General Bipin Rawat, while speaking after unveiling of bronze statues of K.M. Cariappa and General Kodandera S. Thimayya at Cauvery College Gonikoppal in South Kodagu, had said that it was time to recommend Field Marshal K.M. Cariappa for the Bharat Ratna. “If others can get it (Bharat Ratna), I see no reason why Field Marshal Cariappa shouldn’t be a deserving personality for the same,” he had said amidst thunderous applause from  the audience.
