Reiterating that there was something mysterious in the former Tamil Nadu chief minister's death, Saravanan said a probe should be launched into the same.

He also criticised Chief Secretary Girija Vaidyanathan over a government advertisement on Jayalalithaa's birth anniversary celebrations that was published in newspapers.

Late Tamil Nadu CM and AIADMK supremo Jayalalithaa's niece, Deepa Jayakumar, today launched a new political front - Amma Deepa Peravai - on the occasion of her aunt's 69th birthday.

"People are continuously expressing interest, that I should contest from there I am definitely going to take that call and contest from R.K. Nagar", Deepa told ANI.

Angry Constituent Scolds Mitch McConnell In A Deeply Satisfying Video
Earlier in the day, McConnell was greeted by about 1,000 protesters outside a similar event in Lawrenceburg, KY. Several hundred protesters gathered outside the American Legion Post in Lawrenceburg to rally against Sen.

Stalin also clarified that he did not want to criticise Jayalalithaa personally, since it would not be political civility.

Soon after the demise of Jayalalithaa, posters and banners hailing Deepa were erected in several districts of Tamil Nadu with supporters urging her to stake her claim over the AIADMK. However, Deepa had earlier thrown her weight behind Panneerselvam. Deepa also said that she would contest Assembly elections from the RK Nagar constituency in Chennai.

Lodged in a Bengaluru prison, she said cadres should give welfare assistance, provide community lunches (Annadanam) to the people and carry on by working shoulder to shoulder with the government. But the dust hasn't entirely settled over the state's politics yet. Her political rise was rapid; within a few years she became AIADMK propaganda secretary and was elected to the Rajya Sabha, the upper house of India's Parliament.

In a veiled attack on Panneerselvam, she said, "When enemies and traitors wanted to defeat the party and the government, Amma's soul guided us and has put up the AIADMK government in the seat of power". "I had already said that the meeting (with Panneerselvam) was only a courtesy call". Talking about the controversy surrounding Veda Nilayam, the residence of Jayalalithaa while she lived, Deepak said, "This is a family property and it belongs to me and Deepa".
