A day after staging a walk-out from the National Development Council meeting held at New Delhi, Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa on Friday took up the issue with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

“I do hope your office will give necessary directions to Ministries to conduct such plenary conferences where State Ministers are invited in a more polite and dignified manner at least in the future,” the Chief Minister said in her letter to the Prime Minister.

“I had to cut short my speech in the middle because of so-called time regulation which stifled the opportunity to express one’s views fully. The other CMs and I came to Delhi to state the field situation and bring a sense of realism and fairness to the process of plan preparation. Instead, we acquired an impression that the intention was to cow us down with a display of might by the Central government,” she maintained.
