may join the swearing in on Tuesday.
It seems that things have been sorted
out in the DMK camp, with the deletion
of TR Baalu’s name from the
list. As of now, it looks that the
family has won over the party. Karunanidhi’s
son MK Azhagiri and grand nephew Dayanidhi
Maran will be the two frontrunners
for the three cabinet berths allotted
by the Congress, the other being A
Raja. The portfolios likely to be
given to the DMK would be Information
Technology, Textiles and Chemicals
Four Minister of State portfolios
also are likely to be distributed
among, Thanjavur MP S S Palanimanickam,
Arakkonam MP Jagathrakshakan, Perambalur
MP D Napolean and Nammakal MP Gandhiselvan.
As of now, the CM’s daughter
Kanimozhi is out of the race. While
speaking to the media she said that
she has not opted out and it will
be decided on Monday.
