Tamil Nadu chief minister Edappadi K Palaniswami left for New Delhi on Sunday to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Senior AIADMK MPs and government officials also accompanied Palaniswami, who is on his maiden visit to Delhi after assuming the office of chief minister, sources said.

During his meeting with Modi, Palaniswami is likely to take up various issues, including exempting Tamil Nadu from NEET (National Eligibility cum Entrance Test) and seeking funds to address damage caused by cyclone Vardah, among others.
