Jayalalithaa’s nephew backs OPS; ready to pay Rs 100 crore fine

Dealing a major blow to the Sasikala clan, the late Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa’s nephew Deepak Jayakumar, who was perceived to be supporting the Sasikala faction, lashed out at TTV Dinakaran, terming him unfit to be AIADMK’s deputy general secretary. The party leadership should rather be given to former chief minister O Panneerselvam to maintain its unity, Jayakumar said, and offered to pay the Rs 100-crore fine imposed by the court on Jayalalithaa.
