Schoolgirl rejects award

A SCHOOLGIRL in Tamil Nadu, India, refused to accept an award from a politician because he allegedly humiliated the family a few years ago, reported Tamil Nesan.

S. Janani, a high school student in Manjoor, Nilgiris, had scored 489 marks in her Class 10 board exams, ranking second in the category of government schools.

However, Janani said that she would not accept the award from Ooty assemblyman M. Buddhi­chand­ran.

Later, her father Sundar­rajan claimed that Buddhichandran had refused to nominate his wife for a councillor’s post during village elections in November 2011.

He also accused Buddhichand­ran of having him sent to jail on a false report.

> Malaysia Nanban reported that Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa had kicked off her election campaign by criticising the economic policies of the federal government.

The AIADMK leader urged the people to vote for the welfare of Tamil Nadu and Tamils during an election rally in Kancheepuram.
