SUPPORTING VIP TREATMENT TO SASIKALA IN BENGALURU CENTRAL PRISON, BJP LEADER SUBRAMANIAN SWAMY SAYS ‘NO NEED TO HUMILIATE HER MORE’ :

The Bharatiya Janata Party on Friday came out in support of former All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam general secretary VK Sasikala over getting preferential treatment  in jail, asserting that punishment of being put in jail on a conviction is itself sufficient and there was no need to humiliate her. BJP leader Subramanian Swamy said, “What kind of VIP treatment has she got? Did she get a kitchen where she can cook for herself? We all know that she has committed a white collar crime and is also a leader of a ruling party in Tamil Nadu. The punishment of being put in jail on a conviction is itself sufficient and there is no need to humiliate her.” Swamy further stated that there is no danger of her tampering with evidence as she is carrying out her sentence well. “I think it was a mistake to keep her in Karnataka because of the language difference and local hostility and so on. In my opinion, she should be transferred to the Tamil Nadu Jail so that everyone will be alert there and the government will also be on notice. There is no danger of her tampering with evidence as she is carrying out her sentence well. But at the same time women should be given special consideration. We don’t need to sensationalise these things, because this goes on in every jail,” Swamy said. Yesterday, the DMK and the Communist Party of India ridiculed the reported ‘comfort’ that Sasikala is getting in jail and said this shows how money can buy comforts in the jail. A report by Deputy Inspector General (DIG) (Prisons) D Roopa had asserted that a Rs 2 crore bribe was given to the prison officials by Sasikala in order to avail special facilities in Parappana Agrahara central prison.  The Rediff.com : 14th.
