CPI national executive committee member R Nallakannu and party’s state secretary T Pandian on Wednesday called on Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa at the Secretariat. The meeting lasted for 30 minutes.

Speaking to mediapersons after the meeting, Pandian said he and Nallakannu had requested the CM to withdraw cases registered against those protesting against KKNPP as they had staged demonstrations in a peaceful manner.

Responding to another query, Pandian hailed the CM for vehemently opposing anti-people policies of the Congress-led UPA government.  He said the Centre has been acting against the interests of the people of TN and that the CPI would support the moves of the CM with regard to the welfare of TN.

Meanwhile, Susheela, widow of SP Muthukumaran, the CPI MLA elected from Pudukkottai by-election in 2011 Assembly elections and killed in a road accident on April 1, also met the CM.

 An AIADMK release here said Susheela had sought an audience with the party chief J Jayalalithaa. Following this, Susheela along with her daugther Narmadha and son Narenkumar met the AIADMK chief at her residence. Jayalalithaa consoled the family members.
