    K Kavitha, an MLC from Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS), may not attend the Enforcement Directorate (ED) summons today. Her petition is awaiting a hearing in the Supreme Court scheduled for 10:30 am today. Kavitha, daughter of Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, has been questioned by the ED multiple times regarding alleged irregularities in the Delhi excise policy case.

    In a press conference in Nizamabad, Kavitha called the ED notice politically motivated, referring to it as a “Modi notice” and insinuating political bias. She claimed that the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was using central agencies as part of their strategy in poll-bound states like Telangana.

    Kavitha said, “I have received a notice from the ED, and we have forwarded it to the party’s legal team for guidance. We firmly believe that this is politically motivated, especially considering the charged atmosphere in Telangana due to the upcoming elections.”

    The controversy revolves around the Delhi government’s excise policy for 2021-22, which was accused of favoring specific dealers and allowing cartelization. The policy has been revoked after an investigation by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). The Enforcement Directorate also initiated a case under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) based on the CBI’s probe.

    During the ED’s investigation, a statement was recorded from Butchibabu, an accountant allegedly connected to Kavitha, suggesting a political understanding between Kavitha and Delhi’s Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia.
