Kavitha under pressure to turn an approver?

Kavitha under pressure to turn an approver?

The Central investigation agencies are tightening the noose around Bharat Rashtra Samithi legislative council member Kalvakuntla Kavitha in the sensational Delhi liquor policy scam, even as the courts have refused to give her bail in the case and her judicial remand is getting extended week after week.

There have been reports that it is very difficult for Kavitha to come out of jail on bail at least for another six months, because of the stringent sections of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) in the case filed by Enforcement Directorate.

As a result, Kavitha’s family is under a tense situation even as her father and BRS president K Chandrasekhar Rao is struggling to rejuvenate the party ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, which is turning out to be a tough task.

According to sources, the only option before Kavitha to wriggle out of the case is to turn an approver in the case, so that the entire blame would go on Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, who is the prime target of the Bharatiya Janata Party.

Apparently, KCR has also come to the decision that Kavitha should play a safe game by turning an approver in the Delhi liquor case, as was done by Magunta Srinivasulu Reddy and son Raghava Reddy and others.

He has reportedly asked his son K T Rama Rao to go to New Delhi and meet Kavitha, who is presently in the custody of Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). The court has allowed her to meet her family members for one hour when she is in the CBI custody.

Accordingly, Kavitha can meet her family members and lawyers between 6 pm and 7 pm on Sunday. During this period, KTR will convince Kavitha to surrender before the CBI and turn an approver. If she does that, she might get the bail immediately and even get acquitted, if everything goes well.

But it is a matter of prestige for Kavitha, as she will lose her reputation. Turning an approver amounts to admitting the guilt that she had indulged in liquor lobbying and that might affect her political and personal career.

KCR, however, is of the view that it is the only way she can get out of the case.

“Since she won’t be proven guilty, there is no harm to her image. At the same time, public memory is short. After a couple of days of hungama in the media, people will slowly forget the entire episode,” he has reportedly conveyed to his daughter.
