The State government will honour playback singer K.J. Yesudas with a Lifetime Achievement Award, Culture Minister K.C. Joseph told the Assembly on Monday.

Replying to a submission by Hibi Eden (Congress), Mr. Joseph said the government could not confer any title on Mr. Yesudas as the Constitution did not permit any such decision. However, the government was keen that the singer should be honoured for his contribution to music and various other social causes, he said.
