Vexed with the anti-Telangana propaganda of Telugu news channel TV9, the Telangana MSOs have decided to ban TV9 news channel in Telangana region. Telangana MSO association president Kuldeep Sahani has issued a statement to this effect on Sunday.
TV9 channel is notorious for showing Telangana movement in poor light. The channel has come under fire from Telangana activists on several occasions for telecasting anti-Telangana news.
Last week, TV9 has tried to blow up the AP Bhavan incident to malign the Telangana leadership. Even though TV9 has an OB van stationed in New Delhi, the channel did not bother to cover Yadi Reddy’s suicide in the national capital. But, the same channel went into over drive as soon as Harish Rao expressed his anger on a Seemandhra officer at AP Bhavan.
The ban on TV9 channel should serve as a wake up call for all other Seemandhra channels like NTV, Studio N, Sakshi, I News, ETV and ABN Andhrajyothy – all of which have been telecasting anti-Telangana content.
