Jayalalithaa’s niece Deepa enters politics

Announcing her decision to enter politics, late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa’s niece J. Deepa on Tuesday said she wasn’t sure whether she will join the AIADMK or float her own party.

Speaking to the media here, Deepa said there were two views on her political journey. “I need time to decide. Have to discuss with people. We have to get everybody’s views.”

Deepa said she would announce her next course of action on February 24, the birthday of her aunt Jayalalithaa.

Deepa also said that she does not accept anybody other than AIADMK party founder, the late M.G. Ramachandran, and Jayalalithaa as her leader.
