Close on the heels of BJP and BSP demanding Bharat Ratna for former prime minister AB Vajpayee and Kanshi Ram respectively, Assam unit of the Samajwadi Party on Monday said the country's highest civilian award should be confered on party leader Mulayam Singh Yadav.

SP state unit general secretary Ratul Kumar Choudhury in a letter to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh urged him to confer the award on Yadav.

"He is the only secular leader of our country who has worked with Mahatma Gandhi, Jai Prakash Narain and Ram Manohar Lohia and he is the only leader who can save the nation and its people in the coming years," he said.
