Chief Minister N. Rangasamy on Friday said he will appoint the Ministers before May 27. In an informal chat with reporters on the sidelines of a function held at a private hotel here, Mr. Rangasamy said he would not respond to Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa's statement accusing him of betraying the AIADMK after the polls.

“No comments”

“I will not comment on the statement,” was his answer to repeated queries. Asked whether there was any change in his stand about forming the government on its own, he said “You will know it when the Ministry is formed.”

Meanwhile, former Revenue Minister Malladi Krishna, and Congress legislator, complimented Rangasamy for keeping the photograph of Congress president Sonia Gandhi in his chamber.

“I have seen reports in newspaper about the photograph. It shows that though he quit Congress party, Rangasamy is still a Congress man,” he toldTheHindu.
