TN CM Panneerselvam To Chair First Cabinet Meet


Chennai:  Tamil Nadu Chief Minister O Panneerselvam, who assumed the top office after the passing away of incumbent and ruling AIADMK chief Jayalalithaa days ago, will chair the first meeting of his cabinet in Chennai on Saturday at the state secretariat.

 A tweet from AIADMK’s official account said:  Tamil Nadu Cabinet meeting tomorrow at 11:30 AM. Honourable Chief Minister O.Panneerselvam to chair the meet.

The meeting is set to begin at 11.30 am when a resolution was expected to be adopted condoling the demise of the four-time chief minister Jayalalithaa on December 5, party sources said.

Jayalalithaa, 68, died after suffering a cardiac arrest at the Apollo Hospitals while undergoing treatment for ailments since September 22.

The cabinet meeting comes against the backdrop of the allegation of main opposition DMK in the past more than two months that the government was “non-functional”.
