Rashtriya Lok Dal leader Ajit Singh today called on Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa at the Secretariat here.
Speaking to reporters after the 20-minute meeting, Mr. Singh said he had met the AIADMK leader to congratulate her on her party’s victory in the April 13 Assembly polls, as he was not in the country at the time the results were declared.
Lauding the Chief Minister for delivering governance in an “efficient and effective manner”, he also appreciated the various welfare measures initiated by Ms. Jayalalithaa, who stormed to power after trouncing archrival DMK.
On strains between DMK and Congress over the 2G spectrum allocation scam and its possible implications at national and state-level politics, Mr. Singh said changes were possible but said it would take some time.
Mr. Singh is the latest national-level leader to have met Ms. Jayalalithaa following her victory, besides Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, BJP leader Sushma Swaraj, Left leaders Prakash Karat (CPI-M), A.B. Bardhan and D. Raja (CPI).
