TRS MLC and Telangana chief minister KCR's daughter K Kavitha on Thursday dared Prime Minister Narendra Modi to prove her guilty of any wrongdoings and said that she is ready to face any enquiry by the central agencies. K Kavitha's sharp reaction came amid the reports that the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has named her in the remand report on one of the accused, Amit Arora, in the Delhi liquor scam case.
"We state that we will face any kind of inquiry. If the agencies come and ask us questions we will certainly answer. But tarnishing leaders' images by giving selective leaks to the media, people will refute it," Kavitha said.
The ED in its remand report said that a person named "Kavitha Kalvakathla" used two phones and her IMEI changed 10 times. It, however, did not identify the person concerned.
K Kavitha also accused the BJP government of toppling the state governments and forming its government inappropriately. "Every child in country knows ED arrives before PM Modi in poll-bound states", K Kavitha said.
"Same thing is happening in Telangana as we have elections next year and ED has arrived before PM Modi in the state. We have welcomed them and will be cooperating with them. Still, BJP is playing cheap tricks," the TRS leader further stated.
"Go to people, tell them what you will do for them and get democratically elected but using CBI, ED to win and that too in politically conscious Telangana is not possible," she further stated.
Kavitha's name has surfaced in the remand report filed by the ED in a Delhi court on Wednesday for the remand of businessman Amit Arora in the Delhi liquor policy scam. According to the remand report, businessman Vijay Nair, who has already been arrested in the case, received kickbacks of Rs 100 crore on behalf of AAP leaders from a group, called 'South Group'
According to the report, the group is controlled by Sarath Reddy, Kavitha and Magunta Srinivasulu Reddy. Sarath Reddy, one of the directors of pharma major Aurobindo Pharma, has already been arrested. Srinivasulu Reddy is a member of Parliament belonging to Andhra Pradesh's ruling party YSR Congress Party (YSRCP).
