Police have registered a case against TRS MP and daughter of Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, K Kavitha, for her comments on Jammu and Kashmir and Telangana.

In July, speaking at the Indian Express Idea Exchange, Kavitha said  “Jammu and Kashmir and Telangana were both forcefully and at the same time annexed to the Indian Union”.

Following which a complaint was filed against the Nizamabad MP by K Karunasagar, an advocate and the convener of the BJP’s city legal cell.

The case was registered two days back under Sections 124-A (sedition) and 505 (statements conducing to public mischief) of IPC following directions from a local court, said a South Zone police official.

A local court had last week directed police to investigate and file a case against Kavitha. A police official investigating the case said legal opinion is being sought on the matter for further action.

      Who has made this consution? Just 10-12 men chosen by congress party made that without any referendum or consultation on any major issues like national language, inter state migration protection of rights of regional people in workplace and insutes that are existing within the state borders. So don't talk about consution.

        This should have been taken long back for breaking the oath taken at the time of swearing in ceremony as an MP that she is going to protect, preserve the consution but by her words she blatantly arrogantly violated the oath she should be disqualified and appropriate action should be meted out as per law.
