Political leaders in Tamil Nadu today praised Prema, daughter of an autorickshaw driver from the state, who topped the nationwide Chartered Accountant examinations, besides announcing awards for the girl.

Showering praises on Prema, Shipping Minister G K Vasan announced an award of Rs five lakh for her, noting that the girl's father Jayakumar, a native of Villupuram in Tamil Nadu migrated to Mumbai in search of a livelihood two decades ago.

"I personally feel that Prema's performance should set an example for others to study well", he said.

Vasan said he had ordered the Ennore Port to release the amount from its Corporate Social Responsibility programme to the girl.

The minister said he had spoken to the girl's father and also congratulated Prema, who lives at Malad in Mumbai.

Congratulating Prema, DMK president M Karunanidhi also announced a Rs one lakh award for her.

Congressmen cried after a worthless Rahul was hoisted as vice president of the party.Honest people of the country must have shed emotional tears on the achievement of truly great Prema.What an achiever! May God bless her with further success in life.

In addition to the awards, announced by the worthy politicians, Prema needs a well paid, regular and dignified job, commensurate to her qualifications.  She has expressed her views saying - she wants her parents, whose efforts have made her dream to come true, to live comfortably now . As her family has migrated from TN to Maharashtra just in search on job/livelihood etc. ,the Govt.of TN is expected to provide her a  good job, a good place to live in and to see that her family members live comfortably. And that would be the real award to the deserving Prema.
