Jayalalithaa’s niece Deepa Jayakumar on Saturday formally launched the 'MGR Amma Deepa Peravai' platform on the eve of the late former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister’s 69th birth anniversary.
“'Amma Deepa Peravai' is the platform we launch formally today,” said Deepa Jayakumar. “There is a traitor group working behind the govt and we will work continuously to throw away this group,” she added.
Earlier on Friday, she said that she will be contesting from RK Nagar as people have been expressing interest. “People continuously expressing interest,I am definitely going to take that call & contest from RK Nagar,” she said.
She also said that Palanisamy was not the right person people wanted as a Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu. “This kind of hijacking of the party was not good. He(Palaniswamy) was not the person, people wanted as CM,” said.
