Varvara Rao’s daughter said that, due to not having Telugu books, she slowly started speaking Hindi. He spoke to his mother in Hindi and we could not understand anything. But when he started saying about the death of his mother that we understood that something was wrong. St. George’s Hospital made it clear that Rao is suffering from mental illness.
Press conference for wheel chair
Rao’s daughter further revealed that, Vernon Gonzalvis, who is in jail with Rao on charges of Bhima Koregaon violence, always told him to do something soon.
Our family convened a press conference in July 2020. In which it was said that in Taloja jail, Varvara Rao has not been given a wheel chair and a bed to use. He was ill but the jail administration refused to give him medical facilities.
After the court order, Gonzalvis was shifted to Varvara Rao’s cell for help. After this, after the intervention of Maharashtra government, he was sent to Nanavati Hospital.
