Almost all of the major political parties in India have their own newspapers and TV news channels. But for the Telugu Desam party which was formed 40 years ago and has been in power in undivided Andhra Pradesh for 15 years and residual Andhra Pradesh for 5 years, there is no newspaper or channel. own information. It depends on other media organizations for coverage of party activities and programs.
The TDP finally launched its own newspaper on Tuesday (today). But it is not an ordinary newspaper but an ‘e-paper’. He was named “Chaitanya Ratham”.
TDP leader and former AP CM N. Chandrababu Naidu officially launched the party’s electronic newspaper on Monday at the TDP office in Mangalagiri. The electronic paper was sent to 30 lakh active TDP members shortly after its launch.
Naidu said that although the TDP was formed 40 years ago and was in power for 20 years, he never thought about starting his own newspaper or news channel because the TDP strongly believes that the media must be “apolitical”. Rummaging through Sakshi’s media owned by YSRCP chief and AP CM YS Jaganmohan Reddy, he said, “Some people have created their own newspapers and media channels with the money earned through corruption and shady deals in political and abusing their power. They now dictate all media organizations and warn them against writing anything against them. Those who are bold enough to expose their misdeeds are marked by caste for political reasons. “
Naidu said the TDP electronic document will expose all the wrongdoing of the YSRCP government and raise awareness of the impact of the YSRCP’s erroneous policies and decisions on their lives and livelihoods.
