It is a known fact that the vernacular media in Telangana has been more or less favourable to the Telangana Rashtra Samithi.
There were a few media houses which were adopting anti-TRS stand initially, but party president and chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has virtually crushed these media houses with his thumb and brought them under his control.
Not only that, he started gradually buying some popular channels, albeit indirectly, through big business houses close to him.
Naturally, scribes belonging to these media houses have virtually become TRS activists and they are not hesitating to launch an attack on those who question KCR and his family.
So, on the polling day, these scribes have been dominating all the social media, saying that the TRS is going to get a massive victory, as people from all sections have been telling after casting their votes that they had voted for the TRS. They say that the people are impressed by KCR’s schemes and personality.
Three days ago, former Vijayawada MP Lagadapati Rajagopal predicted that if there is a higher percentage of voting, the TRS would be losing the elections.
And on Friday, when there are indications that the polling percentage is going up sharply, these pro-TRS scribes immediately launched a counter argument saying that KCR is going to prove Lagadapati wrong.
“The increase in polling percentage will only increase the tally of the TRS and there is no surprise if the party gets more than 90 seats in the elections,” they said.
Well, why hurry? Let us watch out till December 11!
