Looks like AP CM Chandrabbau is leaving no leaf unused.According to TDP party insiders, CBN is all set to start a new TV Channel. As there is a heavy need to publicise Governement policies and objectives, CM decided to have this call.
The same idea was used by former Chief Minister of A.P Mr.Kiran Kumar Reddy. The Telugu desam party already has been getting plenty of encouragement and patronage from many private satellite TV channels in the states of Andhra and Telangana and still the TDP Chief is contemplating on starting another channel on his own , tell sources.
In the wake of growing criticism over the ‘loan waiver issues’ and other such issues, CBN finds the need for a separate and exclusive mouthpiece of his own. Naidu’s son Nara Lokesh is said to be actively associated with the project Earlier, Lokesh was actively associated with Studio-N channel owned by the father-in-law of Junior NTR. However, the differences in the family had led to the exit of Lokesh from the media venture.
Despite being a media-savvy politician, Chandrababu never loses an opportunity to remind his detractors that he does not own a news channel to give him the publicity. This moral high-ground may change soon.
The discussions for establishing a channel was held couple of days back and clarity on the launch may arrive in coming days. According to party insiders, Chandrababu Naidu held discussions with the party leaders on the issue and some clarity is likely to emerge in a couple of days.TDP insiders also feel that the party is lacking behind in owning a channel which elevates party to the people.
