Palaniswami's reply came in the Assembly in response to a DMK MLA making a mention of the 'frequent meetings' between the two leaders of late.

The chief minister said  'it is a fact' that he was 'frequently' meeting Modi.

"I visit Delhi to meet the prime minister, where I apprise him of issues in Tamil Nadu and seek due assistance and schemes," he said when DMK legislator Pugazhenthi made a mention about the matter.

Palaniswami has met Modi twice after he took over as chief minister in February following the resignation of his predecessor, O Panneerselvam.
