- A section of the party workers of AIADMK are backing Deepa Jayakumar to take over the office
- A hoarding was also put up supporting Deepa, which was later removed by the police
A hoarding allegedly installed by some AIADMK members in Coimbatore clearly states that they want Jayalalithaa’s niece, Deepa Jayakumar, as their general secretary and not Sasikala.
“Junior Amma J Deepa, we will support,” is what the hoarding states. However, within a few hours the hoarding was taken down by the local police. A poster supporting Sasikala was also blackened by some unidentified men.
A party worker also said that no one can take care of the party the way Puratchi Thalaivi Amma did and certainly not Sasikala. They also added that they want someone trustworthy to look after the party and that is Deepa.
Deepa Jayakumar had expressed her desire to lead the party as the general secretary if the cadres wished her to.
