Modi to meet Amma over lunch todayJanuary 14th, 2008 - 1:01 pm ICT by admin
Chennai, Jan 14 (ANI): Gujarat Chief Minister Narender Modi is all set to meet AIADMK chief Jayalalitha today in Chennai over lunch. It may be recalled that Jayalalitha was one of the first ones to call and congratulate Modi on his triumph in recent elections.
The meeting has fuelled speculation of a possible BJP-AIADMK tie-up in the run up to next years general elections.
Earlier, in the morning Modi offered payer at the famous Guruvayur temple of Trishur district in Kerala.
This meeting of Modi will be his first major political outing beyond Gujarat.
Modi denied to comment on the meeting and said this meeting is just an invitation from Jayalalitha for lunch on the occasion of Pongal.
Modi said that the possibility of early general elections is unlikely, as the political climate is not favourable for the ruling UPA government. ”The Congress is really shocked by the BJP’s victory in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh,” he said outside Sree Krishna Temple in Guruvayur. (ANI)
