Attacks are show of caste arrogance: Arvind
By DECCAN CHRONICLE | Narender Pulloor
HYDERABAD: BJP Nizamabad MP Arvind Dharmapuri strongly condemned the TRS supporters' attack on his residence, claiming that it was carried out at the instigation of TRS MLC Kalvakuntla Kavitha, and that Chief Minister K.Chandrasekhar Rao, his son K. T. Rama Rao, and his daughter were “humiliating other castes with their upper caste arrogance”.
Speaking to reporters, the BJP MP said, "Telangana has become a centre of caste politics under the TRS regime. Kavitha sent TRS goons to my house out of arrogance. She made a lot of disparaging remarks about me based solely on her caste arrogance. TRS activists beat women, family members, and other staff during the attack. Who gave Kavitha the authority to attack my residence and terrorise my 70-year-old mother?”
"Kavitha's political career is nearing the end. I am eager to run against Kavitha in the Lok Sabha elections in 2024," Arvind stated and added that he was not afraid of such attacks. "I'm no stranger to physical assault. TRS employees have physically assaulted me in the past," he declared.
Claiming that he had not spoken anything “unparliamentary” against Kavitha, Arvind, who claimed that he was in Nizamabad when the attack took place, stated that Kavitha was unleashing “TRS goons” to physically attack him because she hadn't been able to face him politically. “I did not make any derogatory comments against Kavitha. CM Chandrasekhar Rao stated that BJP leaders attempted to entice Kavitha to join the party. In a similar vein, I stated that Kavitha approached AICC president Mallikarjun Kharge to join Congress based on my inputs.”
