BRS MLC K Kavitha from Hyderabad questioned why the cases against Congress leaders Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi by the Enforcement Directorate have not made progress after one year. She mentioned that a year ago, the ED summoned top Congress leaders for the ‘National Herald’ case, including Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, MallikarjunaKharge, Pawan Bansal, and leaders from Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. Kavitha asked what has happened in the investigation of this case in the past year and a half and suggested that there may be an understanding between Congress and BJP, leading to Congress leaders not being called for the ED inquiry.
Kavitha also questioned why there has been silence for 20 years regarding the Women’s Reservation Bill, which was approved in the Rajya Sabha but still needs approval from the Lok Sabha. She wondered why Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi have not raised any questions about this bill for the past two decades. Additionally, she criticized the Congress party for not attempting to pass the bill during their time in power from 2004 to 2014.
Kavitha mentioned that the BRS government had previously adopted a resolution in support of the Women’s Bill during the first Assembly meeting after the State formation. She stated that the BRS Parliamentary Party passed a resolution again on Friday, and Chief Minister KCR has also written a letter in support of the bill.
Kavitha expressed her displeasure at comments made by Congress leaders Jairam Ramesh and KC Venugopal, who suggested that she is not qualified to talk about Rahul Gandhi. She advised them to not divide the people of Telangana with a fraudulent and two-faced attitude and instead enjoy Hyderabadi biryani as political tourists.
