Cauvery: Jaya mounts pressure on Centre

New Delhi: Tami Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa walked out of the National Development Council (NDC) meeting here on Thursday after being interrupted during her speech.

"I was barely able to finish 1/3rd of my speech. To show my protest I have walked out of the NDC meet. I began my speech, they rang the bell soon after. This is humiliating," Jayalalithaa told mediapersons outside the Vigyan Bhavan here.

"We are not being allowed to present our views," she added, while accusing the Centre of suppressing the voices of the chief ministers.

Country's apex planning body National Development Council (NDC), a body of all Chief Ministers and key Union Ministers headed by Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh, is underway in New Delhi to approve the 12th five year plan.
