BANGALORE: Many MPs, MLAs and AIADMK supporters came to meet party supremo J Jayalalithaa, lodged at the central prison in Parappana Agrahara, on Monday but she refused to meet anyone.

Actor-turned-politician Sharath Kumar and a group of 10 MLAs and MPs came at 11 am but were not allowed inside. He later told reporters that Tamil Nadu “has been orphaned” by the special court’s verdict against the former chief minister. “We will fight in the High Court and make all efforts to bring Amma out of jail,” he said.

Jaya’s sister Sailaja, her daughter Amrutha and the family doctor Shantha Ram too went to the prison but were refused entry.

Prison sources said Jaya had refused special treatment but had requested the officials to allow her to share a room with Shasikala and Elavarasi.

Her breakfast was prepared by her personal staff Veera Perumal. Nine bottles of glucose and medicines were brought from Apollo Hospital on the prison doctor’s instructions.

New CM Arrives

Newly sworn-in Tamil Nadu Chief Minister O Panneerselvam, who arrived here on Monday along with his senior cabinet colleagues, is expected to meet Jayalalithaa on Tuesday.
