Twenty eight ministers were also sworn in at the ceremony.

The AIADMK had won the 2011 assembly elections and Jayalalithaa was subsequently sworn-in as the chief minister. Last September, she was disqualified after a Bengaluru court sentenced her to a four-year jail term and fined her Rs.100 crore in an 18-year old disproportionate assets case.

The Karnataka High Court upheld her appeal and acquitted her of all charges.
