Tamil Nadu CM MK Stalin gives PM Modi memorandum with 25 demands

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin on Thursday met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Delhi and handed over a memorandum containing 25 major demands of his government.

“The meeting was satisfactory,” Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam supremo Stalin told reporters after the meeting.

“The prime minister greeted me on becoming the chief minister of Tamil Nadu. He assured that I can contact him at any time regarding the demands of Tamil Nadu,” said Stalin.

The demands included the withdrawal of the three farm laws, scrapping the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test and the New Education Policy.

“All entrance examinations for professional courses like the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test should be scrapped and such aspects also featured in the memorandum,” he said.

The DMK chief also urged Modi to operationalise the HLL Biotech Limited, a Union government enterprise, in Chengalpattu town. Last month, Stalin sought funds from Union government to activate the unit for producing coronavirus vaccines.

CM Stalin will also meet interim Congress president Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi Friday and oversee the work of his party office in Delhi.
