In a string of tweets, the former TMNC chief, who is the granddaughter of seven-time Congress MLA AS Ponnammal, targeted the party. "I have been an Indian National Congress loyalist all along and belong to a traditional Congress family. My grandmother AS Ponnammal was elected as MLA seven times, of which five times was from Nilakottai. Yet the TNCC did not deem it fit to field me in the same constituency where I have worked for the last seven years." said Jansi Rani in a tweet.
