Jayalalithaa’s Niece Deepa Jayakumar has come in support of interim Tamil Nadu Chief Minister O Panneerselvam in the ongoing power battle.
During Today’s press conference, O Panneerselvam claimed family members of Jayalalithaa have come in support of him. He thanked Deepa Jayakumar for backing his leadership instead of Sasikala Natarajan.
A day after AIADMK MLAs elected Sasikala Natarajan as the leader of the Legislative Party, Deepa Jayakumar who kept opposing Chinnamma from the beginning termed the elevation as very unfortunate. She went on to describe herself as the true heir of Jayalalithaa and promised to make a crucial announcement on February 24th. Upon announcing her plans to float a political party, Deepa expressed her wish to contest RK Nagar by-poll.
O Panneerselvam and Deepa Jayakumar are likely to meet soon. If they join hands, Sasikala’s Camp will be under severe pressure.
