    Release of funds for disaster relief for drought and cyclone, setting up of the Cauvery Management Board (CMB), stopping Karnataka not to build a dam across the Cauvery were some of the major demands made by Chief Minister K. Palaniswami to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday,

    Je also demanded allocation of 2,000 MW power to be generated by the third and fourth atomic power units being set up in Kudankulam in the state.

    He also urged Modi to release Rs 2,500 crore as an immediate drought relief from the National Disaster Response Fund.

    On the issue of National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) for medical college admissions, Palaniswami sought the approval for Tamil Nadu’s bill seeking exemption from the common entrance test.
