KCR's daughter K Kavitha, booked for sedition, says her remarks on J&K, Telangana misunderstood

TRS leader K. Kavitha.

K Kavitha, Member of Parliament and daughter of Telangana's first Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao, was booked on Monday for her alleged comments on Jammu and Kashmir and Telangana.

But the MP said she had been misunderstood.

"I've been misunderstood. Despite that if people want to file a case, let the law take its own course. I will talk to my lawyer to advise me on what to do," she said.

Clarifying her remarks, she said Jammu and Kashmir and Hyderabad were not a part of India and that is a historical fact.

"Beyond that, I am a proud Indian. Kashmir and Telengana are very much a part of India."

A case of sedition was filed against the 36-year-old TRS leader following directions from a local court, said a South Zone police official.

While responding to a question at an event organised by a national daily last month, Kavitha had allegedly said, "Jammu & Kashmir and Telangana were both forcefully, and at the same time, annexed to the Indian Union. When I say I feel strongly, it's because we were both separate countries, but were merged with the Indian Union after Independence. In 1947, we were not a part of India."

The complaint against the Nizamabad MP was filed by K Karunasagar, an advocate and convener of BJP's legal cell in Hyderabad. "Offended by the anti-nationalist comment, I filed a petition against K. Kavitha and the court directed police to register a case," the complainant said.

The police official said legal opinion is being sought on the matter for further action.
