Relief: Tamil Nadu CM to meet PM
Days after he urged the Centre to grant ₹1,000 crore for cyclone relief operations in the State, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister O Panneerselvam will call on Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday to press the demand. He will also urge the Centre to posthumously confer “Bharat Ratna” on former Chief Minister Jayalalithaa and also put up her life-size bronze statue in Parliament complex, an official release said here on Sunday. The first Cabinet meeting chaired by Panneerselvam on December 10 had adopted a resolution in which the twin matters of the highest civilian award and a statue for Jayalalithaa figured.
