“Our leader has returned after a successful treatment in the US and his health has improved. He will decide the party’s alliance soon,” said Premalatha. To a query on party workers becoming anxious due to the delay in Vijayakant’s arrival, Premalatha explained that her husband travelled for more than 25 hours and had a jet lag. “He took a brief rest at the lounge and had breakfast at the airport. He then underwent a routine heath check-up. This caused some delay in his arrival,” Premalatha said.
