The News Minute | October 24, 2014 | 4.00 pm IST If anybody had any doubts at all, about who would head the AIADMK government in Tamil Nadu after chief minister J Jayalalithaaâ€™s conviction, the party has now made it very clear. It is J Jayalalithaa. It has been raining heavily in Chennai these last few days and the Chennai Corporation issued a circular on the measures that are being taken to mitigate the effects of the rain. So here is what a recent press release by the corporation said: â€śUnder the advice of 'People's CM' J Jayalalithaa Mayor Saidai Duraisamy and Commissioner Vikram Kapur have been working forÂ the welfare of the people" DMK leader T K S Elangovan has condemned the development, and told the channel News X that calling Jayalalithaa 'People's CM' was â€śunacceptableâ€ť. Jaya TV has been calling Jayalalithaa People's CM for quite sometime, and all the time after she was convicted. The official chief minister, O Paneersevlam, has not been mentioned anywhere in the circular. Before he became chief minister, it was the chief ministerâ€™s name which would be mentioned in all the press releases issued by the government. Now, however, he has been replaced by the Peopleâ€™s Chief Minister. So that settles the matter.
