In a statement, she said, “The PMK is planning to remove me from the political field. However, I want them to know that I am not afraid of anything.” Deepa also hit out at PMK stating that the party, which had launched Pasumai Thayagam in the northern districts, had also axed many trees. 

Stating that PMK founder S Ramadoss’s son Anbumani, a former union health minister, was not above corruption, the MAD Peravai’s general secretary said that the PMK was shunting between Poes Garden and Gopalapuram for alliances during elections. 

“PMK cannot win any election by going it alone and it is a castebased party. Further, the PMK does not want my political growth. So, goons from the party threaten me. I regularly receive calls from the PMK cadre. If such things continue, I will approach the court,” she said and demanded Ramadoss to apologise. Meanwhile, the PMK denied her allegations and said that the party had not threatened anyone. 

“We have not threatened anyone, but she is trying to get publicity by making such claims,” said A K Moorthy, a former union minister and PMK leader.
