DMK's K Ponmudi to be reinstated as cabinet minister day after Supreme Court rebuked Tamil Nadu Governor

DMK leader K Ponmudi is to be sworn in as a Tamil Nadu minister today, after the Supreme Court criticised the Governor's refusal to reinduct him despite a stay on his conviction.

DMK leader K Ponmudi is set to be sworn in as a minister in the Tamil Nadu cabinet on Friday. This comes a day after the Supreme Court voiced "serious concern" over the conduct of Tamil Nadu Governor RN Ravi for his refusal to reinduct the party leader.

Ponmudi's swearing-in ceremony will be held at 3.30 pm today. On Thursday, the Supreme Court also directed the Governor to decide the issue within 24 hours.

The governor had refused to reinduct Ponmudi, whose conviction and three-year sentence in a disproportionate assets case the top court stayed recently, despite Chief Minister MK Stalin's recommendation.

Observing that Ravi was defying the top court's order, a three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice DY Chandrachud wondered how the governor say that Ponmudi's reinduction would be against constitutional morality.
