High Drama Unfolds At Poes Garden, Residence Of Jayalalithaa
CHENNAI: High drama unfolded on Sunday morning when Deepa Jayakumar, niece of J Jayalalithaa, was not allowed to enter the Poes Garden residence of former Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa. According to Deepa, her brother Deepak invited her to the home of former CM to pay respects. However, Deepa alleged that she was not allowed to enter the residence and was manhandled by the private security guards.
Angry Deepa also made some incriminating remarks that her brother Deepak Jayakumar and jailed AIADMK secretary Sasikala were responsible for the death of her aunt Jayalalithaa. Though Jayalalithaa was like a mother to him, for the sake of money, he turned against her and killed her, she said.
Meanwhile, her supporters staged a protest outside the house alleging the hand of TTV Dhinakaran, the nephew of V Sasikala.
However, Deepak Jayakumar, speaking to a national TV said, “I called her to pay floral tributes. We both wanted to enter the house as we are legal heirs. But she created the problem.”
He also condemned her allegations that she conspired to kill his aunt and said that he would hold a press conference and clear the air.
Sasikala who lived in the Poes Garden residence when Jayaa was alive, did not vacate it after her death.
After the party had split, Jayaa’s loyalist and former chief minister O Panneerselvam and his camp demanded that the house be converted into a memorial or Jayalalithaa.
Meanwhile, Deepa who has been complaining that she is receiving death threats for the past few months said that she would be meeting the Prime Minister on Monday and speak to him about Poes Garden and her security issues. It is not known yet if she got the appointment or not.
