Commenting on Union Urban Development Minister M Venkaiah Naidu's statement that he met the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa twice and held discussion with her, Soundararajan said that each ministers could have their individual experience and the experience mentioned by Union Minister Piyush Goyal about the inaccessibility of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister has been echoed by many.
