It may be recalled that Sharmila was advised rest because of an injury she sustained during her ‘Maro Praja Prastanam’ pada yatra in the Ranga Reddy district a few days ago. Though she wanted to resume her yatra on Monday, doctors advised her against it, as she needed surgery for the knee injury she sustained when she fell down from her vehicle. They also told her that she would have to take rest for 3 weeks after the surgery on Wednesday. Dr. Somasekhara Reddy has said that they would perform keyhole surgery on her knee. It is learnt that Sharmila would undergo surgery either in the Apollo hospital in Jubilee Hills or some other corporate hospital in the city.
Sharmila went to the Chanchalguda jail in a wheelchair and met her brother Y S Jaganmohan Reddy during the Mulakhat time on Tuesday morning. Brother Anil Kumar was with her. Prison authorities gave half-an-hour time for her to talk to Jagan.
