TDP politburo member and former Speaker Yanamala Ramakrishnudu said today that disclosure of journalists confidential affairs was tragic and a grave unethical act.
He said it was nothing but natural for high competitive environment in reporting the happenings in the scandals involving lakhs of crores like OMC, Jagan Disproportionate assets, EMAAR, VANPIC, Lepakshi, Visakhapatnam pharma city etc.
It is very heinous of the YSRC to link such professional happenings for its political agenda. he said adding that ‘YSRC is slinging mud on journalism, judiciary in a blackmailing tactic to escape from the serious charges the party leader YS Jaganmohan Reddy was presently facing.
He questioned why journalist union leaders who shouted from the roof tops about stifling of freedom of press when the CBI froze the bank accounts of Sakshi daily and channel surprisingly remained silent ? when the same media house and YSR Congress party leaders were accusing the fellow media persons of conspiring to physically eliminate party president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy.
Sri Ramakrishnudu said it is high time the media associations and whistle blowers wake up and took strong steps to thwart the attempts of vested interests as above to exploit them for their political ends by malinging the pillars of democracy like media, judiciary and investigative agencies.
