Is It Journalists Rally or Jagan Party Rally?
AP working journalists and newspaper owners association have rallied in support of 'Sakshi' paper and its employees. Their intention is to tell everyone the fact that government is curbing freedom of press by imposing sanctions of Sakshi related accounts. But, the rally took a new colour altogether.
'A responsible organisation that works for the welfare of journalists is now sheltering a political party, its corrupt leader and interests. How can you do such shameful things so publicly' accused TDP MLC Babu Rajendra Prasad. He highlighted how placards of Jagan, photos of YSR and slogans against Chandrababu, Sonia and Kiran are part of this rally organized by journalists. 'Organisations working for people should be independent of politics, but not like these particular people who are targeting other media for Sakshi's fate', he adds.
The rally merely looked like a protest of YSR Congress party, but never a responsible act of Journos for their colleagues. He advised that Government should take Sakshi in its hands and run the company through an expert panel of Journalists.
