MK Stalin said that his meeting with the Prime Minister was constructive and sounded confident about Chennai's relationship with Delhi.
Following meeting the Prime Minister, Chief Minister MK Stalin has met Congress leaders Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi. As DMK observes an alliance with the Congress, Stalin's meet had caught attention over building a coalition of opposition parties.
