Talking to media persons at YSR Congress party office, he said that a section of media has engaged all its energies to tarnish the image of Jagan Mohan Reddy. He alleged that anti-Jagan news reports were part of a conspiracy hatched by Telugu Desam president N Chandrababu Naidu. Quoting a media report, he asked the media to disclose the sources who claimed that Jagan would be arrested in March month. He asked whether media got any tip offs from the CBI about Jagan’s arrest. Further, he asked the media to explain as to how Jagan would lose people’s sympathy after the arrest.
Ramchandra Rao said although the State Budget presented by Finance Minister Anam Ramnarayana Reddy was ‘anti-people’ and ‘anti-welfare,’ the media did not carry any critical analysis. Instead, some publications have been carrying ‘baseless’ reports against Jagan Mohan Reddy to tarnish his image.
The YSR Congress party spokesperson also asked as to why the CBI was not responding to ‘speculative’ stories being published about its investigation in various cases.
Ramchandra Rao alleged that the TDP chief has launched this campaign using media to divert attention of people from the leaders of his party who were involved in liquor scam and due to by-elections in the Telangana region. He said that the people would lose faith on media if it continues anti-Jagan campaign shunning basic principles.
