Sharad Pawar has been added to the list of Padma Vibhushan awardees of 2017 which is the second highest civilian award in India. While the award is given for exceptional and distinguished service in any field, Twitterati are finding it difficult to digest as Pawar has been subjected to several corruption accusations in the past.
The National Congress Party Leader was accused in the Wheat Scam of 2009, Land Scams of 2004-2007, Sugar Scam, Onion Scam and IPL Franchisees Pune and Rajasthan stake case. You name any talked about corruption case in the last decade and Sharad Pawar’s presence will welcome you.
People have termed Sharad Pawar’s inclusion in the list of awardees as a shame to Padma Vibhushan and took on twitter to vent out their frustration. We have gathered some of the most hilarious and humorous tweets and trust me, Indians have come a long way when it comes to creativity.
Is it true that Sharad Pawar is likely to get Padmavibhushan? My head hangs in shame. Most corrupt person in my country to get this award? pic.twitter.com/UdTiuAVKlv

Just asking : What exactly is Sharad Pawar's contribution to the country to get a Padma ? Unless being corrupt is a criteria ?

BJP Government promised to bring back black money. Instead, they are awarding a man who is equal to a Swiss Bank himself. #SharadPawar
