Will Modi government arrest Kavitha now?

Will Modi government arrest Kavitha now?

If Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s rhetoric at the public meeting held at Warangal on Saturday has to be believed, one would expect that the arrest and prosecution of Bharat Rashtra Samithi leader and MLC Kalvakuntla Kavitha is imminent.

Modi said the Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) government in Telangana led by chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao is the most corrupt government in the country and gave a strong warning that no corrupt leader would be spared. 

What is interesting is that Modi has indirectly referred to the alleged involvement of KCR’s daughter Kavitha in the Delhi liquor policy scam. He said the roots of KCR family’s corruption had spread even to the national capital of Delhi.

“We have seen agreements made between countries and states with a common objective of development. But unfortunately, for the first time, two state governments have been working together to indulge in corruption,” the Prime Minister said, referring to Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal’s links with Kavitha.

He even alleged that the foundation of the dynastic parties had its roots in corruption.

“The entire country has witnessed the corruption and scams indulged in by the dynastic Congress party. Now, the whole of Telangana is seeing the level of corruption in the state by the BRS. Both BRS and the Congress are extremely dangerous for people of Telangana,” Modi said.

One wonders whether Modi would be able to stand by his words on not sparing the corrupt leaders, especially since he referred to the BRS-Delhi government links.

“It remains to be seen whether it is just a political rhetoric only to counter the allegations that there is an understanding between BRS and the BJP,” an analyst said.

If there is no such understanding, then Modi should translate his words into actions and one would expect the central investigation agencies start the crackdown on Kavitha and others shortly.
