Chennai: Six new ministers, who were inducted into the Tamil Nadu Cabinet, will be sworn in at a function at Raj Bhavan Sunday.

Governor K Rosaiah will administer the oath of office to them at 1500 hours tomorrow, a Raj Bhavan release said.

Chief Minister Jayalalithaa yesterday sacked six of her ministerial colleagues and inducted an equal number to replace them.

Those to be sworn-in are former AIADMK minister S Damodaran, R Kamaraj, S Sundraraj, M Paranjothi, who was recently elected to the assembly in the bye-election to Tiruchirapalli West, V Moorthy and K Rajenthra Bhalaji.

The axe fell on C Shamugavelu, R B Udhyakumar, S P Shanmuganathan, N R Sivapathy, G Senthamizhan and Budhichandiran.

This is the third time since May when she assumed power that Jayalalithaa has reshuffled her cabinet.

In June, she dropped Law Minister Isakki Subbaiah and his portfolio was handed over to Senthamizhan.

She then inducted Chendur Pandiyan as Rural Industries minister and Mohammedjohn as a replacement to Mariam Pitchai, who died in a road mishap even before taking oath as MLA.
