Azhikode rejects award

Staff Reporter

Thrissur: Writer-social activist Sukumar Azhikode has said that he will not accept the Padma Shri given to him.

``Such honours are against the Constitution. The Constitution says everyone should be treated as equal. Giving such honours at different levels, the State discriminates between people. I see the Padma Shri conferred on me as an opportunity to expose this discrimination,'' Prof. Azhikode said.
