Panneerselvam to be Tamil Nadu chief minister

CHENNAI: A day after a special court in Bangalore unseated AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa as Tamil Nadu chief minister by sentencing her to four years imprisonment in a disproportionate assets case, party MLAs on Sunday elected O Panneerselvam as her successor, as she wished.

Jayalalithaa's erstwhile cabinet colleagues - Panneerselvam, Natham R Vishwanathan, R Vaithilingam and Edappady Palanichami - met her at the Parappana Agrahara jail in Bangalore in the morning to apprise her of the developments that followed her imprisonment. She intimated them that her choice of successor is none other than her trusted loyalist Panneerselvam.
