K. Kavitha, daughter of Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) MLC and Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao, arrived in Delhi on Thursday and stated that she will appear before the Enforcement Directorate on March 11 after being summoned by the ED on March 9 in the Delhi spirits case.
In a series of tweets, BRS MLS hit out, alleging that certain political motives have been masquerading in the name of investigation. “As a law-abiding citizen, I’ll fully cooperate with investigating agencies. I will appear at your good offices on March 11,” she said in a statement.
“…I have been summoned by ED to appear on March 9th in Delhi. However, due to the Dharna & prefixed appointments, I’ll see legal opinions on the date of attending it,” says BRS MLC K Kavitha.
“I fail to understand as to why I have been summoned at such short notice. It seems that certain political motives have been masquerading in the name of investigation. I categorically say that I have nothing to do with the present investigation,” she said in a subsequent tweet.
“Being a social worker & having prior commitments, I had already planned my schedule for the upcoming week & 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,” she tweeted.
Earlier on March 8, the Bharatiya Rashtriya Samiti (BRS) slammed the Centre after the Enforcement Directorate (ED) summoned MLC K Kavitha in connection with its ongoing investigation into the Delhi excise policy case, claiming that the central probe agencies had become an extension arm of the BJP.
