Jayalalitha syas no one can stop the AIADMK Victory-DINAMALAR

May 16, 2011. Chennai: J Jayalalithaa begins her third term as Tamil Nadu's Chief Minister today. She has been sworn in along with 33 cabinet ministers at the Madras University.

Her AIADMK and its allies stomped to victory in the state elections, landing 203 of the 234 seats in the Tamil Nadu Assembly.

After her oath-taking ceremony, she is hosted a lunch at the Taj Coromandel in Chennai. Among her VIP guests are Andhra politician Chandrababu Naidu and Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi. The Chettinad Chicken Biryani is being highlighted as the day's special on the lunch menu.

Jayalalithaa's track record has established her as an efficient administrator. Her big challenge will be revamping the state's economy - Tamil Nadu has a debt of over a lakh crore rupees. And the new Chief Minister announced a slate of freebies in her campaign which will now have to be delivered.

She also emphasised on the need to set right the Law and Order situtation in the state which she cliam is shabby at the hands of the previous DMK regime.
