Thousands of Reddy’s supporters and BJP workers flocked his vehicle and garlanded him as he held a roadshow to reach his home at Paramadevanahalli on Tuesday. Reddy was visiting Ballari to oversee the preparations surrounding his daughter Brahmani's Big Fat wedding. The wedding is slated for November 16 at Palace Grounds, Bengaluru. Reddy had been barred from visiting Ballari after he was indicted in illegal mining charges by the Supreme Court. In view of his daughter's impending wedding, the Apex Court has permitted him to visit his hometown from November 1 to 21, it is learnt. Earlier in the day, Reddy offered a special puja at Kanakadurgamma temple and later held a roadshow with his supporters accompanying him in vehicles praising him all along.
