‘Modi Summons’, Says KTR on ED Probe on BRS MLC Kavitha

Date:

HYDERABAD — Top BRS leader K T Rama Rao on Thursday launched a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP-led Centre, accusing it of crony capitalism and “misusing” agencies such as the Enforcement Directorate to harass opposition leaders.

Rama Rao, who alleged that the central agencies have become puppets in the hands of the Modi government, claimed that several BRS leaders have been targeted by the Centre, reports PTI.

The summons issued by the ED to his sister and BRS MLC K Kavitha in connection with a money laundering case linked to alleged irregularities in the Delhi excise policy are “not ED summons but Modi summons”, said Rama Rao, son of Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao.

The BRS leader, who is pushing for the women reservation bill, has to appear before the ED in the Delhi excise policy scam case. She has written to the Enforcement Directorate (ED) that she will appear before the agency on March 11.

Alleging that the NDA government has become synonymous with “unscrupulous rule” and “dishonest investigation agencies”, Stalin said. The BRS leader alleged that industrialist Gautam Adani has a link to Prime Minister Modi.

The PM and the Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman remained tight-lipped even though Rs 13 lakh crore of LIC and SBI is lost, he alleged.

He said MLC Kavitha would appear before the ED and cooperate with the agency unlike BJP leader B L Santhosh, who tried to avoid questioning by the SIT of Telangana Police in the case of alleged attempt to poach BRS MLAs.

“Why none of the BJP leaders are being summoned by the central agencies,” he asked.

Hunger strike

Meanwhile, the BRS leader K Kavitha i scheduled to sit on a hunger strike in New Delhi to demand for the introduction of the Women’s Reservation Bill in the current session of Parliament.

Kavitha, who has invited 18 political parties, including Congress to join the one-day hunger strike to press the demand, on Thursday praised Sonia Gandhi for pushing the bill during the UPA tenure.

“I salute Madam Sonia Gandhi for having backed the Women’s reservation Bill despite leading a coalition govt at Centre,” she said, reports IANS.

Kavitha said she has spoken to Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge and General Secretary K.C. Venugopal to send a representative to the protest.

The BRS leader, who is pushing for the women reservation bill, has to appear before the ED in the Delhi excise policy scam case. She has written to the Enforcement Directorate (ED) that she will appear before the agency on March 11.

Kavitha has written the letter in response to the notice issued by the ED asking her to appear before it on March 9. (With inputs from PTI)
