Jayalalithaa was sworn in today as the CM of Tamil Nadu for the fifth time at the University of Madras.
Jayalalithaa who was sworn in Tamil Nadu Chief Minister on Saturday for the fifth time has traversed through several ups and downs in her political career spanning four decades.
Jayalalithaa was disqualified following her conviction in the Rs 66.66 crore disproportionate assets case by a trial court in Bengaluru on September 27.
The 67-year-old AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa was administered oath of office and secrecy by Governor K Rosaiah.
Jayalalithaa set to return as Chief Minister, party leaders says no question of change in HC verdict.
Swamy had filed a case in 1996 against Jayalalithaa alleging that during her tenure as CM, she amassed properties disproportionate to her known sources of income.
It is stated in the judgment that the total income of Jayalalithaa was Rs 34.76 cr.
“What has been pronounced today is not the final verdict,” said DMK President M Karunanidhi on Monday.
Following is the course of events in the disproportionate assets case against Jayalalithaa.
Jayalalithaa and her associates had been sentenced to four years in prison by a trial court on September 27 last year.
Karnataka HC has acquitted former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa.
Addressing administrative corruption is the easy part. Policy corruption is more difficult to tackle.
“The matter does not require a de novo (new) hearing,” said the SC bench.
Even for rivals of the AIADMK, however, the result was not a surprise.
