It is common knowledge that loyalty quotient and complete submission to the writ of Sasikala are the only factors that secured Palaniswami the coveted post.

The assembly, however, will convene February 18 and the Sasikala faction said it was confident of proving its majority of at least 117 legislators in the house of 234.

He was called by Tamil Nadu Governor Vidyasagar Rao this morning to form the government.

Police stepped up security and put up barricades outside the jail complex at Parapanna Agrahara area to prevent the ruling party's factions from crowding and causing law and order problem. "Many MLAs will support only Amma's rule and not rule of a family", he said.

"We have given the Governor a list of legislators supporting our legislature party leader Palaniswami".

Ending the political drama in Chennai for the time being, Edappadi K Palaniswami, who was elected leader of the AIADMK legislature party on the day its general secretary V K Sasikala was convicted in a disproportionate assets case, was sworn in Thursday as Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu.

At the swearing-in ceremony, T.T.V. Dinakaran, the new deputy general secretary of the AIADMK and Ms Sasikala's nephew, was seated in the front row.

Sasikala's role was always that of aide and confidante - she had never been given any formal role by Jayalalitha in the party or the state government. Addressing the media, he said he will not allow the party to go into the hands of few of VK Sasikala's family members.

Meanwhile, back in Tamil Nadu, AIADMK workers and supporters distribute payassam (a rice-milk dessert) outside Golden Bay Resort, after E Palaniswami is set to take over as CM.

General Motors in talks to sell Vauxhall and Opel marques to Peugeot
GM boss Mary Barra is reportedly travelling to Germany today together with board member Dan Ammann to talk to Opel board members. GM has had difficulty turning a profit at the unit and had a tentative deal in 2009 to sell it to Canada's Magna.

Chennai's Poes Garden, residence of late J Jayalalithaa, was the hub of conspiracy and the money flow from one account to another proved the existence of an "active conspiracy" to launder the then Chief Minister's "ill-gotten wealth" to purchase properties in the names of the shell companies, the Supreme Court said today. When a similar situation happened after the death of MGR in 1987, Palanisamy had sworn his allegiance to Jayalalithaa.

The Tamil Nadu assembly will convene on 20 February.

A farmer by profession, Palaniswami was on the sidelines for some time as he lost the Edapadi seat in 2006.

Jayalalithaa inducted him as the Minister for State Highways and Minor Posts.

The conviction effectively means she will be debarred from contesting elections for 10 years - six years after having served a jail term for four years.
