"The Tamil Nadu chief minister didn't attend his May 26 inauguration after Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa was invited to the event."
Chennai, May 30 - Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa will call on Prime Minister Narendra Modi Tuesday and submit a list of issues concerning Tamil Nadu, it was announced Friday.

The memorandum will include long pending issues crucial to Tamil Nadu and on which the central government needs to act, an official statement said.

This will be Jayalalithaa's first meeting with Modi after the latter became the prime minister May 26.

The Tamil Nadu chief minister didn't attend his May 26 inauguration after Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa was invited to the event.

Jayalalithaa is a bitter critic of Rajapaksa, whose regime is accused by critics of killing thousands of innocent Tamils during the final stages of the war that crushed the Tamil Tigers in 2009.
