Deepa Jayakumar (ANI)Late Jayalalithaa’s niece Deepa Jayakumar, who recently launched a political outfit, ‘MGR Amma Deepa Forum’, said that she had to face “several hurdles and obstacles” before floating the outfit. “There were many people who created several hurdles and obstacles trying to ensure that I do not enter politics. But, after facing all those issues and by getting the feedback from majority of those who supported me, I decided to launch this Forum,” she said, two days after she launched the outfit.
She said, “true AIADMK supporters are with me and they have been supporting me since the beginning.” She said she will decide the future course of action based on people’s wish, “most importantly the wishes of true AIADMK supporters.” She emphasised that her recent meeting with former chief minsiter O Panneerselvam was just “courtesy call”, Deepa said, “As I said earlier, it is only a courtesy meeting. Whether I will join him or not will be decided in future.” She had earlier said that she was ready to work with Panneerselvam in the future. When asked if it was her official entry into politics, Jayakumar said,” Yes, it is.” It will be interesting to see what eventually spans out.
