BENGALURU: AIADMK Karnataka State Secretary Pugazhendhi met party leader Sasikala at Parappana Agrahara Central Prison on Thursday evening and briefed her about the latest political developments in Tamil Nadu, including E Palanisamy taking oath as chief minister.

“She was very happy when I told her about the political developments in Tamil Nadu. She said people of the state are with us and the latest development has proved it,” Pugazhendhi told Express.

According to him, Sasikala has not asked for any special facility in the prison. “Chinnamma is not asking for any special facility. She said she will follow the rules of the prison and adjust to whatever has been given to her,” he said.

On Friday, her second day in jail, she seemed a little relaxed and was seen talking to the jail staff. She was very active and walked in her cell for some time. She slept for more than eight hours on Thursday and woke up around 6 am to practice Yoga.

Doctors did a routine check-up in the afternoon before lunch. Four of her relatives, along with one
of her lawyers Murthy Rao, met her. However, the prison authorities did not allow them to talk to her for more than 20 minutes, sources said.
