"I have sought an appointment from the Prime Minister, whenever he gives me an appointment I will go there," she added.
Dramatic scenes were witnessed outside Jayalalithaa's Poes Garden residence on Sunday with Deepa Jayakumar's visit. J Jayalalithaa's niece Deepa Jayakumar and nephew Deepak Jayakumar arrived at Veda Nilayam staking claim to their aunt's property but were denied entry by security personnel. A three-tier security continues to be imposed at the empty mansion.
Deepa who arrived at Veda Nilayam claimed that the property belonged to her and that she should be allowed to enter.
Deepa Jayakumar was stopped by security personnel as well as alleged TTV Dinakaran supporters.
Heavy police deployment was enforced soon after people started gathering outside Jayalalithaa's residence.
