Amid high security, he came out of the jail with folded hands and stepped into a bullet proof vehicle as the frenzied crowd that waited for his release right from the morning indulged in loud cheer and sloganeering. The rousing reception accorded to him was unusual of a context of this kind. His supporters set free white pigeons as a mark of Jagan’s release after 16 months of confinement in connection with his disproportionate assets case.

Clad in light blue, Jagan greeted his supporters with his signature ‘namaste’. He often waved his hands at the crowds. Police resorted to a mild lathi-charge to control the crowd. The party MPs and MLAs and others were also present at jail and greeted him from a distance. The convoy then moved at snail’s pace and at many key junctions -- Chanchalguda, Malakpet, Mozamjahi market, Khairatabad, Jagan's fans have assembled in thousands on their bikes either leading the convoy of the party leader or following it.

It took more than six hours for Jagan to reach home. On the other hand, police have arranged full security all over the road en route Lotus Pond, where Jagan was heading straight from the prison.

Vehicular traffic came to a grinding halt at main junctions in the city when Jagan’s convoy was moving on the busy roads. He even got down from the car at some points and greeted people.

Soon after Jagan was released, party senior leaders including S V Subba Reddy, Roja, Baji Reddy Govardhan, Janak Prasad, G Ramachandra Rao and family members and well wishers thronged Jagan’s house from afternoon to greet their leader.

The palatial house was also decorated with marigold flower garlands. Party workers and supporters were celebrating the release of Jagan by bursting crackers and bike rallies at the house. Jagan was granted bail by the special court for CBI cases on Monday after the central investigating agency filed a memo stating that it had completed probe in the quid pro quo investments case.
