Fathima Beevi defends her action

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM, SEPT. 21. The former Tamil Nadu Governor, Mr. Fathima Beevi, today defended her action in appointing the AIADMK leader, Ms. Jayalalithaa, as Chief Minister in May last. She took the decision according to her understanding of the law as it stood then, she said. ``The decision was my own. I took it after considering various aspects like law and order in the State and the election results giving a massive mandate to the AIADMK,'' Ms. Fathima Beevi, reacting to the Supreme Court order quashing the appointment, said.
