Deepa Jayakumar the niece of the former Chief Minister Jayalalithaa is currently very active on the news. She is very keen in entering the politics after the sad demise of her aunt. After her parent’s death she stayed with Jayalalithaa in her poes garden house. Due to certain differences she moved out of her house. She was never interested in entering politics but soon her statements changed and she said that she is willing to enter the politics if people want her to. She along with her brother were present at the ceremony of Jayalalithaa and Deepak, her brother also performed the last ritual with V.K. Sasikala who was Amma’s confidante.
She when asked by the media said that she wants an answer by Sasikala and her family that how her health was declined so quickly. She even said that she along with her brother was kept away from meeting her and entering her life. She tried to reach the Apollo hospital when she was unwell and told them that she was Jayalalithaa’s blood relative, but she got no response. No one informed her about her health and she got to know about it via the newspapers and TV news. Adding to that she said that just because Sasikala lived with her in the same house doesn’t make her the true heir. There is a process and it has to be followed.
Deepa is a researcher in Media and Communication and she was settled in UK. After the demise of her Aunt aka Amma, she moved back to Chennai and she claims to be the true heir of the throne that was left by her. It was believed that her father wanted to be promoted in the party but that did not happen and hence the family moved out of her house. She is all ready to enter the politics and take the position of her aunt. She said that every thing was pre-planned and people have been planning things since she was first admitted in hospital in the year 2014 on September. She wants to enter the politics if needed and she will intervene if she does not receive any answer from those who are trying to hijack the party.
