Delhi Liquor scam: Kavitha breaks silence, welcomes probe; says `not afraid of BJPs malicious campaign

Hyderabad: A day after her name figured in the Enforcement Directorate's remand report, TRS MLC Kalvakuntla Kavitha said she is ready for any probe and will cooperate with the federal agencies.

"I welcome the federal agencies to investigate. We will fully cooperate with the probe," she told the media in a hurriedly convened press conference.

Kavitha, however, blamed the BJP government for tarnishing her image. "Since Prime Minister Narendra Modi came to power eight years ago, he has destabilized 9 democratically elected governments. A year before the election, ED has been unleashed. I want to tell my people that this is normal. The cases on me or our MLAs and ministers are normal," she said.

She said selective leaks to the media are part of the campaign to malign the image of the leaders. "I am urging the PM to stop these tactics and instead work for the welfare of people. Seek votes on your performance, not riding on ED's piggyback. This will backfire, especially with people of Telangana who have seen many revolutions," she said.

She said they are not afraid of going to jail. "Let them do what they want. We are not afraid. Till people are with us, till we are honestly working, all these issues won't matter," she said.
