Why would T'gana people protest Kavitha arrest?

Telangana Bharatiya Janata Party president Bandi Sanjay Kumar on Wednesday strongly opposed Bharat Rashtra Samithi president K Chandrasekhar Rao’s daughter and MLC Kalvakuntla Kavitha’s statement that the people of Telangana would never bow before Delhi rulers.

Addressing the gathering at the state BJP office on the occasion of International Women’s Day celebrations, Sanjay wondered in what way the people of Telangana were concerned with the liquor scam involving KCR’s daughter.

“Is Kavitha indulging in illegal liquor deal for the sake of Telangana people? Is that ill-gotten money being spent on crop loan waiver or payment of salaries to the employees or towards unemployment allowance?” he asked.

Stating that the people of Telangana had never bowed before anybody in the country, Sanjay said they were now forced to bow their heads in shame because of the illegal liquor scam involving KCR’s daughter.

“Kavitha’s wicket is down with the liquor scam and very soon, all the BRS wickets would be clean bowled. There is no question of leaving those who were involved in liquor scam and gambling activities,” he declared.

The BJP president alleged that womenfolk of Telangana were subject to insults and humiliation during the KCR regime.

“KCR’s son K T Rama Rao had no time to call on the family members of Dr Preethi who allegedly died by suicide due to mental torture by his senior. But he would go to Sania Mirza’s last tennis match,” he criticised.

He recalled that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had explained the greatness of Indian women during his visit to the USA and narrated how his mother had brought her children up braving several hardships. He had upheld the self-respect of womenfolk by constructing 11 crore individual toilets.

“Modi had granted gas connections to nine crore women; power connections to 2.5 crore people under Sowbhagya scheme; houses for 3 crore women and opened 25 crore Jan Dhan bank accounts for 25 crore women,” he pointed out.

On the other hand, KCR had shown no respect to women.

“During his first stint, there was not a single woman cabinet minister. There would be no woman president of the party. There is no women’s commission. For KCR, only his daughter Kavitha represents the entire womenfolk – whether it was for playing Bathukamma or holding meetings of women,” he said.

Sanjay pointed out that the BJP had reserved 30 percent of its organisational positions for women.

“The party had made a tribal woman as the President of India; eight women as governors, four as chief ministers and 11 women MPs Union ministers,” he said.

He assured that a good number of women who had the chances of winning would be given the party tickets in the next elections in Telangana. He asked the women to play a key role in bringing the BJP to power.
