Q.

Last year, one of the country's highest civilian awards - the Padma Bhusan - was given to Sant Singh Chatwal. This year also, the govt conferred the Padma award to Montek Singh Alluwalia. His wife was also conferred with the Padma award sometime back. Do you think our country has become a plutocracy?
