Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa is all set to visit New Delhi on June 14 after a gap of two years amid speculation that the AIADMK might grant support to the NDA alliance.

According to Times of India, there is a possibility that AIADMK will join the ruling alliance and support the government from outside.  BJP sources said that there are chances of a tie-up.

AIADMK has 39 MPs in Lok Sbaha and 12 members in Rajya Sabha which could help NDA in passing various bills.

Political analysts claim that Jayalalithaa would be requiring money to fulfill her poll promises and support from the Centre will make things easier for her.

However, she will be submitting a memorandum on the requirements of Tamil Nadu and the pending issues that need to be resolved, as reported in The New Indian Express.

The memorandum which will be given to Prime Minister Narendra Modi will include demand for the formation of the Cauvery Management Board (CMB) and Cauvery Water Regulation Board (CWRB) to implement the final award of the Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal. 

She might also hold talks on the plight of Tamil Nadu fishermen being held by the Sri Lankan Navy. She would also ask for higher fund allocation to the state.
