Newsroom24x7 Desk

B V RamanaChennai: Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa on Saturday dismissed Dairy Development Minister BV Ramana from her cabinet.

Ramana has also been dropped from the post of District Secretary of the ruling AIADMK.

Rural Industries Minister P Mohan will now look after the Dairy Development portfolio.

While the AIADMK sources were tight-lipped about the reason for Ramana’s ouster, party insiders told newsroom24x7 that Ramana, an engineer, has been fired from the Cabinet and the party post as some of his private photos, allegedly with his second wife, went viral on social media and this was a sensitive issue as the State Assembly elections are round the corner.
