Chennai, Dec 6 (IBNS): Senior AIADMK leader O Panneerselvam on Tuesday took oath as the new Tamil Nadu CM, hours after J Jayalalithaa passed away at a hospital here.

Tamil Nadu Governor C Vidyasagar Rao administered the oath ceremony.

Former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa , who was also a top heroine of Tamil film industry before she joined politics full time, was declared dead by the  Apollo  Hospital which said the end came at 1130 pm.

"Our beloved leader, The Iron Lady of India Puratchi Thalaivi Amma is no more," tweeted All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK).

Jayalalithaa was in Apollo Hospital since Sept 22 and then suffered a cardiac arrest on Sunday evening and was put on an extracorporeal membrane heart assist device, a life support system that aids heart and lung functioning.

Jayalalithaa Jayaraman  was born on 24 February 1948 and was popularly and fondly referred to as Amma and Puratchi Thalaivi by members in her party.

While she last assumed the office of CM in 2015, she previously served as Chief Minister from 1991 to 1996, in 2001, from 2002 to 2006 and from 2011 to 2014.
