At the party headquarters, party’s presidium chairman E Madhusudanan and Finance Minister O Panneerselvam and other leaders welcomed her.
Chief Minister and AIADMK general secretary J Jayalalithaa on Wednesday announced that the party would be organising meetings across the State from May 31 to June 2, to thank the people of the State for giving the party such a massive mandate in the just-concluded Lok Sabha elections.
