am being harassed: Jayalalithaa’s niece
Deepa Jayakumar, the niece of J Jayalalithaa, today alleged that she is being harassed to prevent her from contesting bypoll in R K Nagar Assembly seat to be held on April 12.
Apparently referring to AIADMK chief V K Sasikala’s camp, she said, "Right from the day I announced that I will be contesting in R K Nagar Assembly constituency, I am being harassed in several ways indirectly."
"I could not even stay at my house and goons are being sent against me. I do not know who (goons) they are...," Jayakumar told reporters.
"Several conspiracies are being hatched to prevent me from contesting in the bypoll," she alleged.
Jayakumar alleged that was prevented from visiting the hospital where Jayalalithaa was admitted last year and was also kept away from taking part in the last rites of the leader.
In an unexpected move, she paid homage at Jayalalithaa’s memorial at the Marina Beach here at around 10 PM and sat there in meditation for sometime. Former Chief Minister O Panneerselvam had also sat in meditation on February 7 at the memorial before revolting against Sasikala.
Announcing the founding of MGR Amma Deepa Peravai on February 24, Jayakumar had said she will contest from R K Nagar Assembly constituency that fell vacant following the death of Jayalalithaa on December 5 last year.
