Amid growing speculation over the merger of the two factions of the AIADMK in Tamil Nadu, Chief Minister K Palaniswami yesterday met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Delhi, maintaining that he only discussed exempting the state from the purview of all-India NEET exam.

This was the second meeting since last month between the two where Palaniswami took up the issue of exempting the state from NEET, the all-India medical college entrance test.

Palaniswami "reiterated the request of exemption from NEET for Tamil Nadu", a brief official release in Chennai said.

Stalled negotiations on the merger of two AIADMK factions had picked up again yesterday after a meeting in Chennai.

At the meeting presided over by Palaniswami, the party questioned the appointment of TTV Dhinakaran as AIADMK's deputy general secretary.

A resolution passed in the meeting said Dhinakaran's elevation to the post, hours before his aunt Sasikala Natarajan was taken to a jail in Bengaluru, was against party bylaws, a condition for the merger which former chief minister O Panneerselvam's AIADMK had been pushing for.
