Jayalalithaa sworn in as Tamil Nadu CM

Chennai: All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) chief J Jayalalithaa was sworn in as Tamil Nadu Chief Minister for a third term along with 33 others in her Cabinet on Monday.

Jayalalithaa sworn in as Tamil Nadu CM

The swearing-in ceremony took place at the historic Madras University's centenary auditorium at around 12.30pm where Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi, former Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu and CPI general secretary A B Bardhan were present.

The details of the swearing-in ceremony and the ministers to be inducted were taken at a meeting Jayalalithaa had with Governor S S Barnala shortly after she was elected leader of the AIADMK legislature party.

In keeping with Tamil Nadu's political practice, it will be a single-party government despite AIADMK winning the elections in alliance with some other parties.

While 25 of the 34 members sworn in today will be youngsters and new faces, it will also include veterans like O Pannerselvam who was chief minister for a short time in 2001 when she could not assume the post because of legal problems.

The other old-timers include K A Sengottaiyan (Agriculture). However, other stalwarts including Jaya Kumar and Valarmathi do not find a place in the Cabinet.
