AIADMK supremo J. Jayalalithaa was today sworn-in as the chief minister of Tamil Nadu for the fifth time.

She was administered the oath of office by the Governor K Rosaiah at the packed Madras University Centenary Auditorium. Along with Jayalalithaa, 28 other ministers also took the oath. The ceremony was attended by actor Rajinikanth, ICC Chairman N. Srinivasan and Union Minister Pon Radhakrishnan.

In a meeting on Friday, 67-year old Jayalalithaa was elected as the leader of the legislative party by the chairman of the party presidium E Madusudanan and the law makers at the party headquarters.

Panneerselvam, the treasurer of the party, moved a resolution proposing her name as the Party leader, which was endorsed by Electricity Minister Natham R Vishwanathan, and was then made public.

In the year 2011, the AIADMK party won the elections and Jayalalithaa was sworn in as the Chief Minister. After being convicted in the Bangalore High court, Panneerselvam overtook her position and became the next Chief Minster. She was enforced to resign as the Chief Minster over the 18-year old disproportionate assets case.

Large hoardings with the message of “Welcome Mother (Varuga Thaye)”, “Dharma has won”, were put in various parts of the city.

The roads were decorated with festoons, mango leaves and party flags thereby spreading the message of her return in the 14th Tamil Nadu assembly. She will hold the portfolios of home, police, public, all India services, general administration and district revenue officers. Many old faces including Panneerselvam as Minister of Finance, Natham R Viswanathan as Electricity Minister and R Vaithilingam as Housing Minister, Edappadi K Palaniswami and P Mohan have been retained by her in the governing council.
