MSV deserves greater awards: Jaya

Tamilnadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa on July 14 condoled the death of music composer MS Viswanathan and said the central government should have honored him with a Padma award.

In a statement Jayalalithaa said that it pained her that Mr Viswanathan, who has been honoured with several other awards, was not conferred with a Padma award.

She said that since 1991, when she became the chief minister, she has been recommending Viswanathan's name for the Padma Bhushan, the third highest civilian honour. 

"The Central Government which does not do anything in favor of the states did not lend an ear to this as well," she said. Jayalalithaa added that by scoring the music for Tamizh Thai Vazthu, Mr Viswanathan had secured a place in the hearts of every Tamilian. Tamil Nadu has adopted the song as its anthem.
