Radhakrishna Desperate To Protect Naidu

The Telugu Desam Party suffered a humiliating defeat in the just concluded Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation elections.

It could get just one seat, though it had won considerable number of MLA seats in the last Assembly elections, besides an MP seat (from Malkajgiri).

The Seemandhra voters in Hyderabad, whom the TDP took for granted as its vote bank, dealt a shocking blow to it by voting for the Telangana Rashtra Samithi en bloc.

The entire blame for the miserable performance of the party should go to TDP president N Chandrababu Naidu who campaigned for the party for two days and particularly to his son Nara Lokesh Naidu, who led the party campaign from the front touring every nook and corner of the city, where the Seemandhra voters are predominant.

But for Vemuri Radhakrishna, chairman of Andhra Jyothy Telugu daily and ABN-Andhra Jyothy channel, it appears Naidu and Lokesh had no role in the TDP’s ignominious defeat.

Particularly, the ABN channel, which had extensively covered Lokesh Naidu’s meetings in the GHMC polls in order to project that he was spearheading the party campaign, quietly throw the blame on to Telangana TDP working president A Revanth Reddy.

While making a post-poll analysis, the channel repeatedly showed the photograph of Revanth Reddy to explain the reasons for the TDP loss. Nowhere, it showed Lokesh or Naidu in order to create the impression that it was Revanth who was responsible for the TDP loss and not the father-son duo.

What is worse, the ABN channel also sought to show the YSR Congress party in poor light. Despite knowing fully well that the YSR Congress party did not contest a single seat in the GHMC elections, it included the party’s name in the list of winners and losers, showing “zero” against the Jagan party.

Apparently, it wanted to project that the TDP had done better than the YSR Congress party by winning at least one seat!

What a crooked mind?
