Chennai | Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa today lauded her West Bengal counterpart Mamata Banerjee for winning a second term in that state, saying it was an achievement to be celebrated. Your remarkable victory for a second consecutive term is indeed an achievement to be celebrated, she told Banerjee.

In a letter to the TMC supremo, Jayalalithaa also thanked Banerjee for inviting her for the May 27 swearing-in ceremony as Chief Minister of West Bengal but said she cannot attend it though she would have liked to.

Though I would have liked to attend the ceremony and wish you all the best in person, I am unable to do so, due to pressing official commitments, she said. I convey my warm greetings to you and wish you and your team greater laurels as you propel the state on the path of development, Jayalalithaa said.
