Jaya sacks one more cabinet minister

A month after dropping a cabinet minister, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa today sacked one more minister from her cabinet.

The AIADMK Supermo dropped Animal Husbandary Minister T K M Chinnayya from her cabinet and also dismissed from his party post.

However no reasons were given for dropping Chinnayya from the council of the ministers or removing him from the party post.

Chinnayya was the Kanchipuram east district secretary of the AIADMK.

A statement issued by Raj Bhavan said Governor K Rosaiah has accepted Jayalalithaa's recommendation of dropping Chinnayya and that B Valarmathi, minister for social welfare and nutricious noon meal programme will handle the animal husbandary portfolio.

Last month she dropped dismissed Milk and Dairy Development Minister B V Ramanaa and also dismissed him from all the party post.
