Bengaluru: Deposed AIADMK leader V K Sasikala has left for Bengaluru by road to report at the Parappana Agrahara Prison in the state capital on Thursday as her parole granted for visiting her husband in a hospital in Chennai ended on Wednesday. The 60-year-old leader is expected to reach Bengaluru on time to report at the prison complex by six pm in keeping with the parole condition.
VK Sasikala was granted emergency parole from October 7 to 11, and had asked to adhere to several conditions, including a gag order on interacting with the media. She had visited her husband M Natarajan, who underwent liver and kidney transplantation at the hospital, on all five days of her parole period. According to Gleneagles Global Health City, where Natarajan (74) underwent organ transplantations on October 4 and a tracheotomy two days later, he is recovering well.
The AIADMK leader, who was removed from the party last month by Chief Minister K Palaniswami-led camp, is travelling by a car to reach Bengaluru, which had to halt at several locations here like the Trade Centre point as the area was teeming with party cadres to greet and wish her well.
Also, as was witnessed in the past five days, several women cadres carried their newborns in their arms and requested Sasikala to name them. After halting at several locations, her convoy took the Bengaluru highway.
