AIADMK supremo Jayalalithaa today sworn in for the fifth time as Tamil Nadu chief minister, nearly eight months after she was forced to quit over corruption charges.
Governor K Rosaiah gave oath to Jayalalitha at the Madras University Centenary Auditorium. Actor Rajinikanth, ICC Chairman N. Srinivasan and Union Minister Pon Radhakrishnan attended the ceremony.
Along with Jaya, 28 others were sworn in as Ministers. Jayalalithaa will hold the portfolios of home, police, public, all India services, general administration and district revenue officers.
A day ago, 67-year-old Jayalalithaa was re-elected as legislature party leader at a meeting of party MLAs headquarters, 11 days after she was acquitted by the Karnataka High Court in a disproportionate assets case.
Jayalalithaa has retained old faces when she was chief minister during 2011-14. This includes her trusted aide O Panneerselvam as Minister of Finance, Natham R Viswanathan as Electricity Minister and R Vaithilingam as Housing Minister, Edappadi K Palaniswami and P Mohan. (DNA)

How can one reconcile between being a cult leader and a democrat? If the lady regards herself as a cult leader, then she should find another platform for her work. The democratic platform is for the mortals like you and I. Karu
