Bharat Rashtra Samiti (BRS) MLC and Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao’s daughter Kavitha on Thursday alleged Enforcement Directorate’s notice in connection with the Delhi liquor scam is part of “vendetta politics”.
Addressing a media conference in Nizamabad on Thursday, the BRS leader said that the case had been going on like a TV serial for the past year. She said that the people of Telangana do not need to bother about it.
“As the elections are fast approaching, it is quite natural to witness the episode of notices. From day one, we have been saying that the BJP will do like this. I sent the notices to the legal team of the party and I will act according to their advice,” she said.
The ED has summoned Kavitha to attend the enquiry on Friday.
As the ED summoned Kavita, it became a point of discussion among the political circles across the two Telugu states especially in Telangana. The accused in the case including Sharat Chandra Reddy, Magunta Srinivas Reddy, Magunta Raghava, Dinesh Arora and Ramachandra Pillai turned approver. Kavita appeared before the ED on March 16, 20 and 21.
During her first appearance, the BRS leader was reportedly confronted with Hyderabad-based businessman Arun Pillai, who, according to the agency, had represented the South Group.
The group is alleged to have given kickbacks of Rs 100 crore to the AAP leaders, which was allegedly used during the Goa Assembly polls.
Pillai has reportedly said that he was Kavitha’s associate.
Kavitha has maintained that she has never met former Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, who has been arrested by the CBI and the ED in connection with the case, claiming that her name was being unnecessarily dragged into the matter.
According to the ED, Kavitha is also one of the representatives of South Group in the excise policy case.
