#JayaReturns: Mass Oath Taking Ceremony Catches Twitter's Attention

With J Jayalalithaa taking oath as Tamil Nadu chief minister today, #JayaReturns trended high on Twitter. However, soon Ms Jayalalithaa's ministers upstaged her in the conversation on Twitter as their mass oath ceremony became the talk of town.

The ministers in their crisp white shirts and veshtis stood in a line and took oath together after Ms Jayalalithaa had been sworn in.

  The event wrapped up in less than half an hour, and Twitteratti also pointed out if that was too quick a ceremony. The AIADMK supremo had resigned eight months ago after being convicted in a corruption case. Last week, when she was acquitted by the Karnataka High Court, Twitter called it "Happy Amma Day".

Today, some on Twitter congratulated her.
  Some tweeted their expectations from 'Amma'. Meanwhile, some on Twitter thought the audience at the oath ceremony deserved more attention than the chief minister. Two weeks ago, a court in Karnataka acquitted Jayalalithaa of charges of amassing illegal wealth disproportionate to her source of income.

She will take charge with 28 ministers, including O Panneerselvam, who took over as chief minister in her absence, but will now be back as her finance minister.
