Earlier in the morning, he also met Congress president Sonia Gandhi in Parliament.

Welcoming Stalin to Delhi, Gandhi went to meet him in the DMK office in Parliament and said she came to say 'Vanakkam' to him and will meet him again during his party office inauguration in the national capital on April 2. Stalin greeted her with a shawl.

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and DMK president MK Stalin is on a three-day visit to Delhi. Stalin will inaugurate the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam's (DMK) new office in the national capital at Deen Dayal Upadhyay Marg on April 2.

During his visit, the DMK chief will meet Union Home Minister Amit Shah, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh and other political leaders.

The inauguration of DMK's new office 'Anna-Kalaignar Arivalayam' is going to be a grand ceremony. The party will invite Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other top leaders at the inauguration ceremony.
