The News Broadcasting Association has hit back at Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao for his “blatant threats”, “vicious” remarks against media, journalists. While NBA stated that it was “shocked” with KCR’s remarks, the Editors’ Guild too sharply slammed KCR.

Dubbing KCR’s statements as “arbitrary”, the statement by NBA and Editors’ Guild read so, “This is an attempt to gag media and it’s unacceptable. Freedom of press can’t be compromised within this country. Such statements coming from constitutional authority are uncalled for.” Both NBA and Editors’ Guild out rightly condemned KCR’s remarks. They also raised concerns against black out of two Television channels in Telangana.
