AP CM Caught Reading Sakshi Newspaper
Vijayawada: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu, who criticises Sakshi newspaper and Sakshi TV a number of times in Assembly and at media conferences was caught red-handed on Tuesday.
Late YSR used to ask people not to read two papers which were against his Government when he was CM. He came out openly by citing the names of Eenadu and Andhra Jyothy. After TDP came to power, Sakshi media came out with a series of stories against the ruling party on land acquisition in Capital Zone which irked TDP leaders.
Naidu and his son Lokesh came down heavily on Sakshi media and gave a call for cadres to stop reading Sakshi papaer or watching the TV channel from the same stable.
But now, Naidu was seen seriously immersed in reading Sakshi news paper while travelling in a car. This has caught the party cadres wondering at the attitude of their leader.
Butchaiah Chowdary, TDP MLA, who was cut up when he was denied a berth in the Cabinet during the recent expansion, has also criticised Naidu for questioning party leaders basing on the information published by Sakshi newspaper. He said it shows the double standards practised by the CM. He skipped the East Godavari review meeting chaired by Naidu the other day.
