In the first reaction from the Sasikala camp to the allegation, AIADMK (Amma) Karnataka unit secretary V Pugazhenthi said the only thing that she has been provided in the prison is a bench to lie down and that too on a written request for the purpose. “Nothing else can be given. How can cooking be done there? This (allegation) is heartless. I myself had pleaded with her for taking outside food as per rules. But she refused... she is a poor eater and will do with just vegetable salad,” he told. 

Referring to the visuals in a section of media purportedly showing Sasikala enjoying ‘perks’ in the Parappana Agrahara Prison, where she is lodged since February this year, he claimed they were ‘fake.’
