Bharat Rashtra Samithi MLC K Kavitha left for Delhi late Wednesday night after being summoned by the central agency Directorate of Enforcement in connection with the excise policy money laundering case. On March 11, she will appear before the ED.
In a statement issued shortly after the summons, Kavitha stated that she would fully cooperate with the ED and that the Narendra Modi-led central government’s ‘tactics’ of intimidation would not weaken her, her father and chief minister K Chandrashekar Rao, or the BRS party’s fight against an anti-people regime.
“Let me remind the power mongers in Delhi that Telangana has never and will never bow before the oppressive anti-people regime. We will fearlessly and fiercely fight for the right of the people,” her statement said.
She also questioned ED’s short notice and denied any involvement in the scam.
“I fail to understand why I have been summoned at such short notice. It seems that certain political motives have been masquerading in the name of investigation. As stated, being a social worker and having prior commitments, I had already planned my schedule for the upcoming week, and the abrupt rejection of my request seems to be motivated by reasons best known to you, which demonstrates that it is nothing but “Political victimisation”, her statement read.
K Kavitha on Wednesday declared that she would not get cowed down by the intimidation tactics of the BJP government at the Centre. She also said that as a law-abiding citizen, she would continue to fully cooperate with the investigation agencies probing into the Delhi excise policy case.
However, due to the Dharna and scheduled appointments, the BRS legislator has decided to seek legal advice on the date of attending the ED for questioning.
I will be appearing before the Enforcement Directorate in New Delhi on March 11, 2023. https://t.co/OjAuzJZytS
