Telangana CM KCR took strong objections to few recent comments of Seemandhra media, particularly TV9 channel and Andhrajyoti daily paper. “TV9 had the audacity to abuse and malign the newly sworn in members of Telangana assembly, It had compared the new members of the House with drunken monkeys, with hapless beggars who are seeming out of place in this assembly, It had questioned the knowledge and fitness to be in this House… How dare they heckle a new member of the House, Shobha, representing Choppadandi…? Andhrajyoti too has been writing malicious content with ulterior motives, they are jealous of the Telangana people, they are unable to see this House up and running with the entire representation of Telangana’s true children, I warn these media houses, I will not tolerate such respect less behavior, If need be, I will adopt the Tamilnadu model and takeover the Cable TV industry into government fold, I suggest the moving of Privileges motion against these Seemandhra mouth pieces,” thundered KCR to much applause from all members of the House,
Immediately, Congress member Jeevan Reddy proposed moving Privileges motion agaginst TV9 and Andhrajyoti.
Here is what KCR said….
