May 18, 2014 15:52 IST

Prime Minister-designate Narendra Modi on Sunday assured Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa of "absolute cooperation" between the Centre and her state while lauding her for her party's stupendous victory in the Lok Sabha polls.

Modi spoke to Jayalalithaa over phone and thanked her for her letter on Friday congratulating him for his party's 'magnificent win' in the elections.

"Selvi (Ms) J Jayalalithaa, wished him a very successful tenure as prime minister of India. The Hon'ble Prime Minister -- designate assured the Hon'ble Chief Minister that there will be absolute co-operation between the Government of India and the Government of Tamil Nadu," a state government release said.

Modi's assurance came in the wake of the AIADMK chief saying in her letter that she looked forward to a meaningful era of Centre-state cooperation with the BJP leader at the helm of affairs.

The release said Modi also congratulated Jayalalithaa for her party's 'remarkable victory' where she notched up 37 of the 39 seats in the state.
