‘Amritanandamayi should be given Bharat Ratna’

via Pioneer News Service | Kochi published on January 16, 2008

Bharatiya Janapaksham, a social and cultural organisation in Kerala, urged Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to consider spiritual leader Mata Amritanandamayi for this year’s Bharat Ratna award.

The president of the organisation, K Raman Pillai, told the media that Mata Amritanandamayi was a person whose selfless service to the humanity had lifted the lives of several persons across the globe and her name was apt for consideration for the ultimate honour given by the country.

Speaking to reporters here on Wednesday, Pillai said though Amritanandamayi has been honoured by several countries, India has not bestowed any award on her. He added that she should be considered for the top honour of the country, Bharat Ratna.

Bharatiya Janapaksham was constituted in January 2006 by former State BJP president K Raman Pillai, who also served as its first president.

Pillai now heads its newly formed political wing. He said Bharatiya Janapaksham has decided to collect public funds, which would be used for the comprehensive development of poor families.
