Kavitha’s arrest imminent?

Must read

PNS | Hyderabad

With the Telangana SIT issuing notices to BJP national general secretary B L Santosh in the MLAs poaching case, there are signals now that MLC Kalvakuntla Kavitha’s arrest is imminent in the liquor scam, in what is seen as Centre-State tit-for-tat games.

With the five-day custody of Abhishek Boinapally coming to end, Kavitha, reportedly close to Abhishek, is likely to be issued notices and subsequent taken into custody.Boinpally was arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation in October for allegedly lobbying for certain liquor businessman based in southern India. Arun Ramchandra Pillai (A14), also known to be close to Kavitha, was also called for questioning and Gorantla Buchi Babu was interrogated on Friday. Given all this, the next steps appear to be targeting the TRS MLC for her alleged role in the liquor scam.

There is another indication of the commencement of tit for tat games between the State and the Center. Highly placed sources said that the Delhi corridors are looking at initiating inquiry into the ‘ESI and PF scams’ allegedly involving Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao. The ESI construction scam, which was further investigated by CBI in 2015, is still pending with the central agency. Sources indicated that for pursuing this old case, new permissions are not needed for CBI. Sources alleged that the complaints against the Chief Minister were being read closely.

Highly placed sources said, “When a complaint and previous scams were disclosed to the Minister, they were taken aback at the scale of the scams.It is being said that one mediator, who is resident of Delhi, can divulge details of Provident Fund-related issues of not just Sahara but also of private security agencies, beedi and gutka makers, carpet industry”.

Sources alleged that almost all the files related to the Chief Minister, including his presence in Parliament as Union Labour Minister, are being combed. Sources said that the central government was looking at some of the unqualified members who had been appointed as members of the labour advisory committees since they also may reportedly give statements.
