Chennai: Deepa Jayakumar, the niece late Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa, who openly stood against VK Sasikala, on Thursday launched ‘MGR Amma Deepa Peravai’.
While addressing the media Jayakumar said ‘Amma Deepa Peravai’ is a federation at present moment and urged the youth to support it.
Jayakumar refused to define the new platform started by her as a political outfit.
Jayakumar, who has been attacking Sasikala said, “There is a traitor group working behind the Tamil Nadu government, adding that she would work continuously to throw away this group.”
A month after her aunt and former Jayalalithaa died, Deepa Jayakumar had declared that she has entered politics and will work to fulfill aspirations of AIADMK workers.
London-educated Deepa first shot into limelight when she alleged that she was not allowed to meet her aunt Jayalalithaa when she was hospitalised for 75 days. Later, she also alleged that she was not allowed to attend Jayalalithaa’s funeral in December.
The niece of ‘Amma’, has claimed to be the “real political heir” of the late AIADMK leader.
On AIADMK’s decision to elect Jayalalithaa’s close aide Sasikala as the party’s general secretary and the leader of the legislature party, Jayakumar gad said: “Being with someone for 33 years is not a qualification to become the Chief Minister of a state.”
