Chennai, March 29 (BPNS)

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, M.K. Stalin who is on a four-day visit to New Delhi commencing from March 30th will meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi and take up a host of issues related to the development of the state with him.

This is the second meeting of Stalin with the Prime Minister after he assumed office in May 2021 as the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu.

The Chief Minister’s office in a statement said that while the meeting with the Prime Minister on March 31st is confirmed the meetings with Union Home Minister, Amit Shah, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, Transport Minister, Nitin Gadkari, and Defense Minister, Rajnath Singh has not been confirmed.

Stalin is expected to take up several issues concerning the state of Tamil Nadu including pending bills with the Governor and other infrastructure and development issues.

The Chief Minister will inaugurate ‘Anna Kalaignar Arivalayam’, the DMK party office in New Delhi on April 2nd. The DMK parliamentary party leader and former Union Minister, T.R. Baalu has met the Congress president Sonia Gandhi, BJP president, J.P. Nadda, and other senior leaders and extended the invitation of the DMK office inauguration.

It is to be noted that the DMK is trying to catapult M.K. Stalin to the national stage as an alternative to the BJP during the 2024 polls and the Delhi office inauguration is considered a major meeting point with senior regional chieftains and to take up the coordination for an anti-NDA front at the national level.

 While West Bengal Chief Minister, Mamata Banerjee and Telangana Chief Minister, K. Chandrashekhar Rao had traveled across the country and met senior opposition leaders for a joint front, Stalin is more acceptable due to the fact that he is maintaining an excellent relationship with the Congress, CPM, and CPI which will be of use for a national anti-BJP front.
