Jayalalithaa's niece Deepa Jayakumar, on Friday launched his own political party MGR Jayalalithaa Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (MJDMK) party at the late AIADMK leader's memorial in Chennai's Marina Beach. Earlier Madhavan was associated with his wife's party called MGR Amma Deepa Peravai, which he quit in March 18 this year. When asked about why he made a new political party instead of joining his wife's party, Madhavan said Jayakumar's party is a federation whereas MJDMK is a political outfit.
