CHENNAI: Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa will be meeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi at his office in New Delhi on Tuesday and will highlight issues relating to Tamil Nadu which require his urgent attention to safeguard the legitimate interests of the State and propel the State on a faster growth plan.

This is her first meeting with Modi after he assumed the office of the Prime Minister. Jayalalithaa skipped the swearing-in ceremony of Modi on Monday, protesting the invitation extended to Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa. Most of the political parties in Tamil Nadu too protested the move.

During her meeting with the Prime Minister, Jayalalithaa will be presenting a memorandum to him on “very crucial issues relating to Tamil Nadu which have been pending with the government of India”.

Formation of the Cauvery Management Board and Cauvery Water Regulation Board for implementing the final award of the Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal, retrieval of Katchatheevu and restoring the traditional fishing rights of Tamil Nadu fishermen, Lankan Tamils issue, and setting right the corridor congestion to enable Tamil Nadu to purchase power from northern states are some of the key issues the CM is likely to raise during her meeting with the Prime Minister.
