Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalitha 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, Jayalalitha 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,” Jayalalitha said.
