Tamil Nadu chief minister and DMK president MK Stalin is on a two-day visit to Delhi, starting today. According to reports, he is scheduled to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Stalin, who took the oath as Tamil Nadu’s chief minister last month, will likely discuss Covid situation in his state. It is his first visit to the national capital since taking over the office.
Though any official confirmation of meeting’s agenda is yet to be released, it is believed that the two leaders will discuss on previously talked about matters.
On Monday, in a letter to the Prime Minister, the Tamil Nadu chief minister had sought directions to the ministry of petroleum and natural gas to cancel the bid process for extraction of hydrocarbon in Vadatheru Block of the Cauvery Basin in Pudukkottai district.
Ma Subramanian, Tamil Nadu health minister, had said on Sunday that the chief minister will request the Centre for more Covid vaccines for the state. “Death numbers are expected to decrease in coming days. Vaccination is the only solution to get rid of corona infection so people should come forward to get Vaccination,” the minister was quoted as saying.
Earlier this month, Stalin also asked PM Modi to cancel the conduct og NEET and other entrance exams in the backdrop of Covid-19.
