Jayalalithaa asks Modi to help resolve NLC strike

Chennai, July 23 (IANS) Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa has sought Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s intervention in resolvng a strike at Neyveli Lignite Corporation Ltd (NLC).


In a letter to Modi, sent on Wednesday and released to media here on Thursday, Jayalalithaa said the wage settlement for NLC workers is due from January 1, 2012 and “though they have been given interim relief in June 2014, their wage settlement has not been made so far”.

The NLC workers went on strike from June 20 to press from their demand for an early wage settlement

“May I, therefore, request you to kindly instruct the ministry of coal to immediately look into the grievances of the NLC workers and settle the issue amicably at the earliest in the interest of the industrial climate of Tamil Nadu and also in the interest of ensuring uninterrupted power supply to Tamil Nadu,” the chief minister said.

Tamil Nadu gets 1,450 MW of power generated by NLC.


  1. So, Jayalalitha c/o Parappana agrahaara, didn’t want to attend Modiji’s recent planning meeting. However, she wants modiji to resolve conflicts when it affects her own interests. What’s the tamil word for hypocrite?

    • Duplicate Paimaam quizzes “What’s the tamil word for hypocrite?”

      Sir, surprisingly, the word is not “RSS”! Tamil language has miserably failed to give the right word for hypocrisy! Hope they would soon set right their vocabulary, and incidentally, Pai Maam’s too.

  2. Dear readers,

    If Modi’s government wants to pass the ‘land ordinance’ bill in Rajya Sabha he even needs to catch hold of Jayalath ‘PALLU'(loose end of the sari) or ready for ‘Sashtanga Namaskara ‘.

    In this way Pradhan sevak will continue his ‘yoga’ therapy from his busy globetrotting schedule clocking more ‘Air miles’.

    When Modi will be visiting state of ‘Tamil Nadu’ in Republic of India?

    Jai hind
