Tamil Nadu chief minister and AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa on Wednesday thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his support in ensuring the unanimous election of her party MP M Thambidurai as deputy speaker of the Lok Sabha.

Jayalalithaa spoke to Modi over the phone and "Thanked him for his support in ensuring the unanimous election" of Thambidurai as deputy speaker, a state government release here said.
