Following her meeting with Tamil Nadu caretaker Chief Minister O Panneerselvam, Jayalalithaa’s niece Deepa Jayakumar Tuesday said that she is ready to work with Panneerselvam in the future.

When asked if it was her official entry into politics, Jayakumar said,” Yes, it is.”

Earlier in the day, Jayakumar had welcomed the Supreme Court conviction of Sasikala in the disproportionate assets case and said it was a “good and long pending verdict”.

“Now it is clear that those who indulged in corruption have been taken to task. I have always been saying that Sasikala could never be accepted because of the assets case,” she said.

Earlier in the day, she was joined by O Panneerselvam at Chennai’s Marina Beach to pay tribute to Jayalalithaa.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday convicted AIADMK general secretary VK Sasikala in the disproportionate assets case. With this judgment, her bid to become the chief minister of the state was officially put to rest as the conviction sentenced her to four years in jail.

      What gives her the right to ADMK.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;The party is owned by 1.5 crore party worker and if at all she should have staked claim over Poes Garden residence of her aunt and not the seat of Power.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;To see Old MGR Confidates playing courtiers to a Deepa was as bad as Sasi"s family seeking say in ADMK.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Goes to show what Politics in India has been reduced to.

        Who is Deepa?lt;br/gt;She is not elected by the people to work with anybody.lt;br/gt;This is the height of dynastic ambition and sycophancy.

          Mutual Compulsions. Paneer does not have charisma to gather votes or win in his own consuency. Deepa is novice but a potential candidate who can gather votes. Except this there is no moral binding between them. Both are cheating public. If Deepa was not allowed to meet Jaya in hospital, what was paneer doing as minister? Why he did not order police to allow deepa inside or why he has not directed Apollo? The AIADMK was looting relief materials when Chennai was in floods, same AIADMK blocked traffic for hours together in Arterial roads causing trouble to public. Compare this with DMK. Whenever Karuna was travelling in road, there was no blockade.

            Why the media gives credibility to people with no talent just because they are related to someone. This woman talks about Sasikala and et case, does she know JJ was also convicted which also makes her part of another corrupt family !?
