Before heading home, Akash went to the BJP office, where he was offered flowers and sweets. He thanked his supporters and said that he spent his time well in the prison.

He promised that he would continue to work for the people of the area and expressed hope that he would not have to "bat again". Another MLA from Indore Ramesh Maindola, a close confidante of Kailash Vijayvargiya, was present throughout his journey home.
