AIADMK Leader Sasikala’s Five Days Parole Ends:- The sacked AIADMK leader, VK Sasikala, on Thursday left for Bengaluru by road, to report at the Bengaluru’s Parappana Agrahara Prison as her parole for visiting her husband in a Chennai hospital, ended on Friday.
From the residence of Krishna Priya, her close relative in T Nagar, Sasikala left this morning. On all five days of her parole period, she had visited her husband, M Natarajan, who underwent organ transplantations on October 4 and a tracheostomy two days later. And according to doctor reports, he is recovering well.
The AIADMK leader was traveling in a car, which had to stop at several locations like the Trade Centre point as the area was teeming with party cadres to greet and wish her well. Sasikala was ousted from the party last month by Chief Minister K Palaniswami-led camp.

Moreover, several women cadres carried their newborns in their arms and requested Sasikala to name them, as was witnessed in the past five days. Her convoy took the Bengaluru highway, after stopping at several locations.
In keeping with the parole condition, the 60-year-old leader is expected to reach Bengaluru on time to report at the prison complex by 6 P.M. After the Supreme Court upheld her conviction by a special court in a disproportionate assets case, Sasikala has been lodged in the Parapana Agrahara central jail since February this year. Her relatives Ilavarasi and V N Sudhakaran are also serving four-year jail terms in the case.
Sasikala was granted emergency parole from October 7 to 11. She was asked to stick to several conditions, including a gag order on interacting with the media. While Sasikala’s nephew and sidelined AIADMK leader T T V Dhinakaran and the ruling camp are fighting it out to get the two leaves symbol, Sasikala was on a five day parole. The ruling camp is led by Chief Minister Palaniswami and deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam. The two leaves symbol was frozen by the Election Commission.
