Three non-Congress chief ministers, who are opposed to setting up of the National Counter-Terrorism Centre, are likely to meet their Tamil Nadu counterpart J Jayalalithaa separately in New Delhi on Monday to evolve a strategy against the proposed anti-terror body.


Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi, Punjab's Parkash Singh Badal and Orissa CM Naveen Patnaik are expected to meet Jayalalithaa separately at the Tamil Nadu Bhawan in New Delhi.

The chief ministers are here to attend the Conference on Internal Security convened by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in New Delhi on Monday.

All the four chief ministers have publicly expressed their opposition to the NCTC which led the Centre to put the move on hold and convene a separate meeting of chief ministers on May 5. They had called the move to set up NCTC was against the federal structure.

During their meeting with Jayalalithaa, Modi and other leaders would discuss a strategy to be adopted at the May 5 meeting.
