Goa Forward Minister Vijai Sardesai has demanded that Goa’s nightingale Lorna be conferred with country’s second highest civilian award Padma Vibhushan.

She was honoured in Madgao on Thursday, on the occasion of her 74th birthday by Madgao Ravindra Bhavan.

Besides Vijai, Lorna was felicitated in the presence of ministers Vinod Palayekar and Jayesh Salgaonkar as well as Ravindra Bhavan chairman Prashant Naik.

The birthday cake was also cut. The programme was a treat for Saxttikars with Lorna singing the famous classics composed by late Chris Perry.

Two young girls – Dhiti Lotlikar and Skully D’Souza from Muscat also sang Lorna’s songs.
