By Rahil Nora Chopra : VK Sasikala, the expelled AIADMK leader and a close associate of former chief minister, J Jayalalithaa, was released from Bengaluru Central Jail, Parappana Agrahara, on Wednesday. However, doctors treating the 66-year-old for Covid-19 at Victoria Hospital have advised against discharging her for the next two-three days. Sasikala was sentenced to four-year imprisonment in 2017 in a disproportionate assets case. She would certainly play a vital role with her breakaway Amma Makkal Munnetra Kazhagam. The BJP is reportedly trying to forge an alliance with her party to lure her supporters in Karnataka and if the AIADMK is divided it will only benefit DMK and Sasikala may be open to compromises.
