Union Govt responding to allegations of nepotism by popular singer S.Janaki while rejecting Padmabhushan award conferred on her, said there was no partiality shown in finalising Padma awards. Union Minister V.Narayana Swamy speaking to media in Tirunelveli, Union Govt is not showing any partiality towards any state and it is not fair to blame centre that it is ignoring Southern talent. He said a team of eminent persons in a committee scrutinized names recommended and shortlisted few of them which they will send to Cabinet Secretary. The list will then be finalised by PM and President. He requested Janaki to reconsider her decision and accept the award.
