    Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi leader Thol Thirumavalavan demanded that the Bharath Rathna, the highest civilian award of the Nation, to be conferred on music maestro Illayaraaja for his outstanding contribution to the music industry for more than 30 years.

    According to Thiruma, delay in honouring such legends in time is just equal to insulting them. "Illayaraaja is the fine example for hard work and he is a true ambassador of Indian music in world arena," Thiruma said in a statement.

    On Sunday, He said that though many from the state, including Viswanathan Anand and singers Sirkazhi Siva Chidambaram and P Susheela, have been chosen for Padmasree awards, it is strange that the world renowned musician has been not given any award.

    The MDMK General Secretary Vaiko also compelled the Union Government a few weeks ago to honour Illayaraaja with the nation's highest award.
