Thirty-three-year-old transgender woman C. Devi, who will be contesting from the high-profile R.K. Nagar constituency on a Naam Tamilar Katchi ticket, insists that she is as worthy of being called a ‘Mother’ as the incumbent Chief Minister Jayalalithaa. “The CM often says that she doesn’t have a family of her own. What about me? I have really not had anyone for support throughout my life,” she says, drawing on some of the recent speeches of Ms. Jayalalithaa.
