Panruti S. Ramachandran, who recently retired from politics, has been nominated for this year’s Perarignar Anna award. Two other political personalities - K. Ayyaru Vandayar and Sulochana Sampath have also been nominated for the Kamarajar and Periyar awards.

Recipients of other awards are: Yusi (Thiruvalluvar award); M. Prakash (Ambedkar award); K. Gnanasambandan (Bharathiyar award); Radha Chellappan (Bharathidasan award); Ashokamithran (Thiru Vi Ka award); and V. Jayadevan (K.A.P. Viswanatham award).

The awards, each carrying Rs. 1 lakh, a gold medallion and a citation, will be presented at a function here on Wednesday. Government orders granting financial assistance to indigent 30 Tamil scholars will also be presented at the function.

Amma is no longer the leader of a political party.She is the leader of
the Tamils here and abroad.She should be judicious,fair, just and
honest in selecting people for awards.Till yesterday, Panruti was
ignored and neglected,having been abandoned her rival party, Panruti
is chosen for a reward. Of course person like Panruti deserve
recongnition for his long innings in the politics.Amma should not
confine her administration and patronage as a partisan politician.She
should set a good example to others and set a role model for
others.Atleast she should all eligible tamils in all political
parties,irrespective whether one is inclined to support her or
not,deserve recognition.She is honouring them as a government head of
the people,not as chief of the AIADMK.She should be judicious and
magnanimous.Her fame and popularity should pervade and prevail even if
she is not in power.Power comes and goes suddenly to any politician of
the day.she should learn to live for all times, ever remembered.
