Andhra Jyothy Takes Up Karnataka Cause!

Andhra Jyothy Takes Up Karnataka Cause!

Andhra Jyothy, as the name suggests, is supposed to highlight the issues concerning the people of Andhra Pradesh. One can understand it also takes up the issues of Telangana, as it has headquarters in Hyderabad and till recently, both Telangana and Andhra Pradesh were united.

But how would understand if the paper takes up the cause of neighbouring Karnataka that would be detrimental to the interests of Telugu states? Well, only Andhra Jyothy can do it.

The daily has an edition in Bengaluru, too, and has a tabloid that goes along with the main edition. The tabloid is meant for highlighting the issues of local Telugu people in Bengaluru and other parts of Karnataka, since the readers are only Telugus.

A couple of days ago, the Karnataka edition of Andhra Jyothy carried a special story in its tabloid. It is about the Karantaka government’s indifferent attitude towards the Almatti dam on Krishna river.

It says though the Centre had permitted the Karnataka government to raise the dam height to 524 metres, it has been kept still at 519 metres and is not taking any steps to raise the height. So, the daily question as to when Karnataka government would up from slumber and raise the dam height.

One can understand if it is a statement of a local opposition leader; but it is the special story of Andhra Jyothy which questioned the government’s apathy. Naturally, it is shocking to the people of Andhra and Telangana, which have been protesting against the raising of Almatti dam height for ages.

How can a Telugu daily write the story against the interests of Telugu people? Well, only Radhakrishna can do it.
