New Delhi: DMK MP and M Karunanidhi's daughter Kanimozhi is expected to reach Chennai on Saturday. She left for Chennai on Saturday morning.

This will be Kanimozhi's first visit to the state since she was granted bail and released from jail in the 2G spectrum scam case.

DMK workers are planning to host a grand welcome for DMK Chief M Karunanidhi's daughter.

An elated Karunanidhi said on Monday that the party would organise a big welcome for her, when she arrives in Chennai.

"I am happy that Kanimozhi has been granted bail. She spoke to me soon after the court gave her bail and both of us shared the happiness," Karunanidhi, who met his daughter thrice in Tihar Jail, where she was lodged after her arrest on May 20, told reporters in Chennai.

"I am not an autocrat. The Party will decide on giving a new position to Kanimozhi," he said when asked whether she would be given a new position in the party.

Kanimozhi would be in Chennai upto December 6 and then go to Delhi to attend the hearing of the 2G case to return on December 10.

Kanimozhi was arrested in May for her alleged role in the 2G spectrum scam case. She and four others were on Monday granted bail by the Delhi high court.
