The Telangana ruling party Chief KCR who is claiming to be clean regarding dirty politics got exposed via Right to Information Act. His own media wings’ shocking profits have now become the new talk of the Political Circles.
KCR after coming into the power became the unofficial dictator of the newest state in India. He went on banning channels which aired programmes against him and launched his own channels to promote TRS Government and its achievements. Directly or indirectly, his family is owning a Telugu Daily called Namaste Telangana, an English daily Telangana Today and a news channel T- news under its kitty. Within four years these news mediums saw an unbelievable growth in terms of its advertisements.
If we have a look at the leading Telugu dailies like Eenadu saw the only growth rate of just 1% in the recent year. But the ads of Namasthe Telangana got a hike of 389% increase in the last year. The Government channels are demanding more money and it became a tradition that many companies are promoting their products via TRS’ channels. The English Daily Telangana Today also got a hike of 94% in the recent times. This is only possible if the Chief is indirectly demanding the State to use the services of his channels.
Last but not the least, the channel T- News has 2000+ ratings for promotions. Its other channel V6 backed by an industrialist close to TRS crossed 1000 spots. Other channels like TV9, ETV2, ABN etc didn’t even cross the 1000 mark at any cost. Every individual has the right to information act to know these things which exposes us the real facts of our Politicians and their earnings via stakes in private organizations.
