Narayanasamy offer worship at Meenakshi temple

Madurai: Union Minister of state in the PMO V Narayanasamy on Saturday offered prayers at the famous Meenakshi temple here.

"I sought the blessings of God Sri Sundareswarar and Goddess Meenakshi for removing hurdles in the safe commissioning of the Koodankulam Nuclear Power Project, he told reporters after visiting the temple.

The minister said when he came to the city last time to address the Chamber of Commerce, he had prayed at the temple seeking the blessings of the deity for the smooth commissioning of KNPP and for removing "the darkness prevailing in Tamil Nadu due to acute power shortage."

"Now with the cooperation of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister (Jayalalithaa), the hurdles had been removed", he said.

He also thanked DMK chief M Karunanidhi, various trade bodies and organisations for supporting the KNPP project.
