Chennai: AIADMK leader J Jayalalithaa took oath as the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister for the fifth time on Saturday at the Centenary Auditorium of the University of Madras. Along with her, 29 other ministers also took the oaths in presence of Governor K Rosaiah.

She was re-elected as legislature party leader on Friday at a meeting of AIADMK MLAs. She was forced to quit over the disproportionate assets case. Nearly after 11 days after she was acquitted by the High Court of Karnataka in the assets case, Jayalalithaa was re-elected.
