Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and AIADMK chief J Jayalalithaa Tuesday sacked K P Munusamy within an hour of inducting him into the cabinet.
Munusamy, who took oath as labour minister on Tuesday evening along with two others, was also removed from the post of Krishnagiri district secretary and member of disciplinary committee. This, despite his party winning comfortably in Krishnagiri Lok Sabha constituency.
Munusamy’s removal was so abrupt that not even an hour had passed since he took oath and posed happily for photographers at Raj Bhavan, seated beside finance minister O Panneerselvam — the AIADMK man coming closest to the definition of number two in the party.
For now, the labour portfolio has been given to rural industries minister P Mohan.
Jayalalithaa had sacked three ministers and four party district secretaries on Monday — all of them were from the three constituencies where the party failed to win in the Lok Sabha elections.
