Chennai: AIADMK MLA RB Udhayakumar was on Wednesday sworn-in as Minister in the Jayalalithaa-led cabinet.
Governor K Rosaiah administered the oath of office and secrecy to Udhayakumar in the presence of Chief Minister Jayalalithaa and her cabinet colleagues at a brief function held at Raj Bhavan.
Udhayakumar, who was dropped from the ministry in 2011, stages a comeback following his re-induction into the cabinet.
Udhayakumar, MLA from the Sattur segment, has been given the portfolio of Youth Welfare and Sports Development, hitherto held by KV Ramalingam, who was dropped by Jayalalithaa two days ago in the wake of some land grabbing allegation against him.
