CHENNAI: During his four-day visit to New Delhi, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M.K. Stalin will meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi and discuss a variety of issues pertaining to the state's development.
This would be his second meeting with the Prime Minister after taking office as Tamil Nadu's chief minister in May 2021. While the meeting with the Prime Minister on March 31 is confirmed, the meeting with Union Home Minister Amit Shah, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari, and Defence Minister Rajnath Singh is still pending confirmation, according to the Chief Minister's office.
Stalin is expected to discuss a number of problems with the governor, including upcoming bills and other infrastructure and development issues.
On April 2, the Chief Minister will open the DMK party office in New Delhi, named "Anna Kalaignar Arivalayam," during his visit. T.R. Baalu, a former Union Minister and DMK Parliamentary Party leader, met with Congress President Sonia Gandhi, BJP President J.P. Nadda, and other senior officials and issued an invitation to the DMK office inauguration.
Notably, the DMK is attempting to propel Stalin onto the national stage as a rival to the BJP in the 2024 elections, and the inauguration of the Delhi office is seen as a crucial meeting point with senior regional chieftains and the start of national coordination for an anti-NDA front.
