Answering queries from mediapersons at the secretariat after attending the MPs’ meeting convened by the Chief Minister, Navaneethakrishnan said, “The Chief Minister advised us to safeguard the interests of the people of Tamil Nadu, just like late Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa did.”

The Chief Minister also advised that the MPs bring to the notice of the Central government the problems faced by various sections of people with regard to the Goods and Services Tax.   
As far as the Presidential assent for two NEET Bills of Tamil Nadu was concerned, Navaneethakrishnan said, “We all sought two years exemption for Tamil Nadu for NEET.

Meanwhile, the Chief Minister has convened the State Cabinet meeting for Thursday evening.   Sources said the meeting would discuss according approval to certain key schemes.
