DD which is meant to be a promoter of public interest development programs has become a campaign tool of the YSRC.
A favorite of the erstwhile YSR regime, Murali and his accomplice Ramakanth in the Hyd news division have turned the bureau into a camp office of YSRC.
Both are very hostile to AP Govt and present CM Kiran Kumar Reddy as both are SC belonging to Dy CM camp, and also that Kiran did not extend the deputation of Murali in AP Government and sent him back to DDK.
So while Kiran gets bad publicity, It is Jagan Mantra on Doordarshan from morning to evening.
‘Jagan is watching my program’ says anchor Ramakanth live on the morning bulletin which is hatched at the dictates of the YSRC henchman Y V Subba Reddy. Naturally at Chanchalaguda jail only the DD channels are screened and other cable and satellite TV channels are blocked.
More so the Jagan camp follower Ramakanth is also updating the You Tube with all the news he has aired on DD for public promotion. Insiders in Doordarshan say that is the way Ramakanth gets paid by YSRC for his contributions to Jagan, minute wise.
