There was no need for lakshmana to accompany rama to the forests. he did so out of love for his brother. bharatha only followed the law of land in not accepting the kingdom of kosala. he did his duty. but he too wanted to accompany rama. only that he was given a task to rule the kingdom in rama\'s stead. its like asking who loves u more ur mother or ur father? what can u answer. both were great and were examplary as situation warranted.

Lakshmanan for he had nothing of himself before his brother. Interestingly there is a thathwartha (unlettered concept) behind the historical story.

The four sons of Dasharatha are compared to the four Anthahkaranas (internal or soft-instruments) of the human being viz., Budhi, Manas, Chitta & Ahankara in the order of Rama, Lakshmana, Bharata & Shatrugna. In order to live as per Dharma (set of righteous rules) one has to make his mind (seat of emotions) implicitly obey the verdict of Budhi. If one follows the story with this concept in mind the truth of the thatwartha becomes evdent. Even today to function rationally among multifareous emotions tearing a person apart one has to surrender his emotional needs to suit economic, culturual, and family norms. In fact the epic Ramayana has great meaning only when understood with its inherent thatwas rather than as a historical one.

I think it is Bharat because he lived by wearing the dress made of Wood peels
and also ruled Ayodhya on behalf of Ram. He worshipped Ram and did not enjoy any of the kingly comforts
