Member of Parliament from Nizamabad and Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) chief’s K Chandrasekhar Rao’s daughter Kalvakuntla Kavitha sent a legal notice to Congress National Secretary and spokesperson Madhu Yaskhi on Monday following his remarks against her. “She betrayed people of Nizamabad. She broke all the promises she made to people of #Nizamabad,” he wrote on Twitter.
In a press conference held on Sunday, Madhu questioned the activities conducted in the name of her non-profit organisation, Telangana Jagruthi.
“The entire family is eating money. How many hundreds of crores did you get, tell me sister,” he said. He further questioned if she built her bungalow in Hyderabad with the money she got after colluding with sand mining contractors and that alleged that her husband, Anil Kumar, took money for the transfer of police department posts.
In response, Kavitha sent a legal notice to Madhu on Monday, stating that the allegations were “false and baseless” and was a “defamatory, scandalous and false and reckless statement”. The notice also demanded that he publicly apologise for his statement.
“You are hereby called upon to withdraw your defamatory and malicious remarks by publishing and publicly apologising before all the news channels and newspapers within three days of receipt of this Legal Notice, failing which my client will be constrained to take appropriate legal action against you including prosecuting you for criminal defamation at your risk, cost and consequences. Also the noticee should refrain from making false, malicious, defamatory allegations against our client,” the notice states.
Madhu had also lashed out at IT Minister and Kavitha’s brother KT Rama Rao earlier this week, and alleged that the 423.657% increase in assets of the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) leader’s family was only the tip of the iceberg. He said that one of the main reasons for KTR’s growth in assets was Call Health, a company in which the Minister was allegedly an indirect investor.
