The swearing-in of J Jayalalithaa as Tamil Nadu’s Chief Minister remains a mystery, with the AIADMK rubbishing claims that the party leader will be sworn in on May 23.

“A television channel did not carry my full statement resulting in a lot of confusion. I had clearly said that the swearing in of Amma (Jayalalithaa) as chief minister on May 23 is not yet confirmed”, party spokesperson C.R. Saraswathi told IANS.

“Only J. Jayalalithaa can decide if she will be Tamil Nadu’s chief minister again”, he added.

“What she said was that she would meet AIADMK legislators on Friday morning. The same day, Jayalalithaa would pay floral tributes at the statues of the party’s founder M.G. Ramachandran, DMK founder C.N. Annadurai and DK founder E.V. Ramaswamy”, the spokesperson said.

Though the agenda for the Friday meeting of legislators is not known, it is widely believed that Jayalalithaa may be elected leader of the AIADMK legislature party.

With the resignation of P. Vetrivel, a party legislator from Radhakrishnan Nagar constituency here, the AIADMK strength in the 234-seat assembly comes down by one to 150, excluding the speaker.

While these developments indicate that Jayalalithaa is all gearing up to become the chief minister again, there is no official confirmation.

Recently, Jayalalithaa had lost her chief minister’s post and assembly (Srirangam constituency) seat after she was convicted by a trial court in Bengaluru for holding assets disproportionate to her known sources of income.

The Karnataka High Court had upheld her appeal against the conviction and acquitted her.
