CHENNAI: Tamil Nadu Governor C Vidyasagar Rao on Thursday appointed Edappadi K Palaniswami as chief minister. The Governor invited him to form the ministry at the earliest.

The governor requested the chief minister-designate to seek the vote confidence of the assembly within 15 days.

His appointment is in acceptance of the "letter of submitted by Palaniswami on Tuesday that he was elected as the leader of the AIADMK+ legislature party at a meeting of the party MLAs held on that day," a Raj Bhavan press note said.

Rao conveyed his decision to Palaniswami when the latter visited Raj Bhavan at 11.30am, along with party presidium chairman K A Sengottaiyan and senior ministers Dindigul C Sreenivasan and P Thangamani.

Palaniswami has claimed that he has the support of 124 legislators, while the O Pannerselvam camp had that of only 10. (Times of India)

    I went through the history of this new CM. Well, he was a very poor man and now he has 12 mansions in Tamil Nadu and 15 Luxury cars in different relations names, like how Mahinda Rajapakshe did.

    He and his MLA's planned and made Jayalalitha sick and went for a game with Paneerselvam and got in to power like MR became the President with bogus votes.

    He is a crook like our old king Mahinda, very soon he will be taught a lesson by the public.
