KCR made all set to face worst consequences afer the arrest of his daughter Kavita in New Delhi. He planned thenation-wide protest, state-wide Modi government boycotts and protests and early polls to utilize the sympathy.
In the event that party Legislator and his daughter Kalvakuntla Kavitha are detained by the Enforcement Directorate in connection with the Delhi liquor scam, the Bharat Rashtra Samithi, which is led by Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, is preparing for a statewide uprising.
It was obvious that Kavitha would be the next to be detained by the ED after the arrest of Hyderabad-based alcohol trader Arun Ramachandra Pillai on Tuesday and the submission of his remand report, which identified her as Pillai’s benami.
As anticipated, Kavitha received a summons from the ED directing her to appear before the inquiry body on March 9 in New Delhi.
She replied to the ED, asking for an extension until March 15, stating that she needed to attend a dharna at Jantar Mantar as well as other obligations.
However, sources claim that the BRS MLC tried to gain time in order to get ready for the statewide protests that would have taken place in the event of her arrest.
She travelled for Pragati Bhavan to meet with her father KCR to discuss the plan shortly after announcing that she would help with the authorities investigating the Delhi scandal.
According to sources, KCR told her that instructions had already been issued to all the BRS leaders and cadre across Telangana to launch a state-wide agitation.
Subsequently, he would plan a nation-wide movement against alleged witch-hunt by the Centre against the opposition party leaders.
Within hours of ED serving notices to Kavitha, there has been a flurry of statements from the BRS leaders including ministers and MLAs condemning the Centre for targeting Kavitha and Telangana.
“After building up the heat across the state, KCR might go in for early elections by raking up anti-BJP sentiment,” sources added.
Meanwhile, Bharat Rashtra Samithi president and Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has called for an emergency meeting of all the senior party leaders to discuss the latest situation in the state.
The meeting has been called amidst reports that the Enforcement Directorate might arrest KCR’s daughter and MLC Kalvakuntla Kavitha whose name figured in the remand report of Hyderabad-based industrialist Arun Ramchandra Pillai in connection with the Delhi liquor policy scam.
According to party sources, the meeting would be attended by BRS MPs, MLAs and members of the party general body at Telangana Bhavan at 2 pm on Friday. Besides, BRS district presidents, chairpersons of State-level corporations, Zilla Parishads and others have also been asked to attend the meeting.
Apparently, KCR would brief the latest developments including witch-hunt by the Enforcement Directorate and the Central Bureau of Investigation on the opposition leaders.
“If Kavitha is arrested, the party would step up the agitation and take the fight into the people,” sources said.
Even though there are still eight months till the assembly elections, KCR may express his position on moving up the polls in the state and solicit advice from the party leaders.
He would hold in-depth discussions and create an action plan for the party and its regional and federal activities. According to insiders, the summit would also discuss ways to increase public awareness of government initiatives and their effects on Telangana residents’ lives.
The State Cabinet meeting is also slated to take place at Pragathi Bhavan. In addition to discussing government initiatives, the Cabinet is likely to make significant choices regarding how they will be carried out.
During the meeting, the names of the two candidates who will be nominated for the State Legislative Council in accordance with the Governor’s quota are also anticipated. #hydnews #hydkhabar #livehyd
