Constitution of India or Constitution of BJP? Kavitha slams Telangana Governors rejection of BRS MLC nominees

HYDERABAD: BRS MLC Kalvakuntla Kavitha wrote to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), on Sunday, indicating that she would not be able to appear for the investigation on February 26, 2024, due to personal engagements.

She expressed this in the light of her “pressing onerous obligations” as well as her commitment to the people of Telangana and the importance of her personal presence in her state during the Lok Sabha elections.

She also requested that the notice be revoked or withdrawn because it appeared to have been submitted under Section 41A Cr.P.C. despite her being unaware of the prior notice sent under Section 160 Cr P.C.

Kavitha also made it clear that she had no role in any of the claims of the CBI and that the CBI no longer required her assistance in the matter because the case was completely sub judice before the Court of Law.

Kavitha said in her letter, "I may request you to firstly revoke or withdraw the subject Notice as it appears to be sent by invoking Section 41A Cr.P.C. while not being aware or conscious of the earlier Notice sent under Section 160 Cr.P.C.

In the light of my pressing onerous engagements coupled with my commitment to the people of my State and taking into consideration the necessity of my personal presence in my State while the parliamentary elections are underway, your good-self may consider keeping such Notice in abeyance. I may also beseech your good-self to consider the entire matter with objective understanding and appreciation regarding my onerous engagements, duties and responsibilities towards the people of my State with whom I am scheduled to attend several one to one personal meetings in the next about 6 weeks or so spread over different districts in the State thereby rendering me practically incapable of appearing before you in person on February 26, 2024.

“However, should your good-self require me to answer any queries or questions or to seek any information from me, I shall be always available to appear before your good self through any virtual mode, the details, particulars and timings whereof may be sent to me in advance. I express my grave dismay and concern that your good-self has chosen to send me a Notice under Section 41A of Cr.P.C. when about one year and 3 months back on December 2, 2022, the then Investigating Officer, Deputy Superintendent of Police, CBI issued me a similar Notice under Section 160 Cr.P.C.”

He letter further reads, "Since I have absolutely no role to play in any of the accusations, the CBI does not need my assistance any longer in the matter as the case is entirely sub-judice before the Court of law. Present Notice under Section 41A Cr.P.C. is in complete contrast to the earlier Notice under Section 160 Cr.P.C. which was issued to me on December 2, 12.2022 and which already stands complied with. There is absolutely no logic, reason or background forthcoming as to how, why and under what circumstances have you now resorted to Section 41A Cr.P.C. When the matter is sub judice before the Supreme Court albeit in respect to the PMLA case arising out of the connected investigation, wherein a definite statement has been made by the Learned ASG that I may not be summoned until the hearing, the same would in essence and spirit apply to the present case as well."
