என்னைப் போல் எவ்வித அரசியல் பின்புலம் இல்லாத ஒரு நடுத்தர குடும்பப் பெண்ணை உங்கள் வீட்டுப்பிள்ளையாக எண்ணி ஏற்றுக்கொண்டு வாக்களித்தமைக்கும் நம்பிக்கை கொடுத்து ஊக்கம் கொடுத்தமைக்கும் நான் என்றும் உங்களுக்கு கடமைப்பட்டுள்ளேன்.— Padma Priya (@Tamizhachi_Offl) May 13, 2021
சில காரணங்களுக்காக நான் சார்ந்திருந்த மக்கள் நீதி மய்யம் கட்சியில் இருந்து விலகுவதாக முடிவு செய்துள்ளேன். அதை எனது தொகுதி மக்களான உங்களுடன் பகிர்வது எனது கடமை என்று கருதி தெரிவித்துக்கொள்கின்றேன்.— Padma Priya (@Tamizhachi_Offl) May 13, 2021
