"'Amma Deepa Peravai' is the platform we launch formally today", said Jayakumar. The late chief minister's nice has made a decision to fight elections from R.K Nagar, the same constituency which belonged to the late chief minister Jayalathiaa. However, Sasikala accepted Dinakaran and Dr Venkatesh's apology and reinstated them in the party on the day she was convicted in the disproportionate assets case.

"The chances of succeeding in the present political context are very high because only six people have to leave Palanisamy and the government of Tamil Nadu will fall". In 1982, when MGR was chief minister, Jayalalithaa joined the AIADMK, the party he founded.

She said the Forum has been formed to "retrieve the two leaves (AIADMK's official symbol) and bring back Amma's golden rule in Tamil Nadu".

Talking to the daily, Jayakumar said former chief minister O Panneerselvam should be shouldered with the responsibility of the party leadership. He will launch the initiative at the Tamil Nadu Government Multi Super Speciality Hospital Campus in Chennai, according to a report. Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami planted a sapling at the Omandurar Government Estate here marking the launch of a drive to plant 69-lakh saplings and a greening project in areas hit by Vardah cyclone previous year commemorating Jayalalithaa's birth anniversary. But the dust hasn't entirely settled over the state's politics yet. Shortly after Jayalalithaa died in December, Jayakumar made it clear that she would want to be her aunt's political heir. Deepa hogged the limelight after she was denied permission to see Jayalalithaa when she was hospitalised for more than two months. Deepa, who has an uncanny resemblance with her aunt, has minced no words in her opposition to Sasikala or about lending support to OPS. "There is a "traitor" group behind the government and we will work continuously to throw away this group", she said.

But supporters like S Manivalan, an autodriver, were hopeful.
