Panneerselvam to be TN CM

Chennai: Ending all speculation, AIADMK elected Finance Minister O Panneerselvam as CM to succeed jailed party supremo J Jayalalithaa, who began serving a 4-year prison sentence for corruption, after a special judge sentenced her for amassing wealth illegally when she was CM in 1991-96. Party MLAs unanimously decided Pannerselvam's name after meeting at the Bangalore Central Jail and later publicly announced his name for the post of CM of TN. Panneerselvam, 63, who once ran a tea stall which is still with his family, once become the CM for 6 months in similar circumstances in 2001, and held the post until Jayalalithaa bounced back. Shortly afterwards, Governor K Rosaiah invited him to form a government.
