PM Narendra Modi met Tamil Nadu CM Jayalalithaa at her residence in Chennai. Meeting assumes importance in the backdrop of the NDA's push to garner support for its key economic reforms bills in Parliament. But, the State BJP unit said that Modi meeting Jayalalithaa at her Poes Garden residence was a lunch diplomacy. Though Jayalalithaa was not present during the National Handloom Day celebrations at the Madras University, Finance Minister O Panneerselvam read out her speech that warmly welcomed Modi.
