To create a storm in a teacup, almost all the political parties are backed by one media house or the other. Interestingly, family members of big politicians own these channels and try to project them as like the adage reads ‘lone Tulasi plant in the opium garden’ (Ganjayi vanam lo Tulasi mokka).
Here comes an interesting interview carried by Sakshi TV, which is being operated by Jagan’s wife and other relatives, wherein popular political analyst Kommineni is seen posing some tongue-in-cheek questions to Jagan. On the eve of YSR Congress president YS Jagan’s Praja Sankalpa Yatra completing 30 days, Sakshi did this exclusive interview that will be aired tonight at 7’o clock.
Going by the promo, the intriguing questions sound like this: They say only you (Jagan) will be left in the party post the elections; Comments are being thrown by TDP on your Padayatra including Chandrababu; How come pension for 45 years?; what would you feel when they say you’re trying to escape those CBI cases?; Didn’t Nandayala election result upset you?are a few to sample.
Needless to say, these are some crucial and definitely hurting questions posed to Jagan Reddy, but the same questions would have sounded more credible, factual and realistic had a TV9 or ABN or NTV asked them. Now that Sakshi has questioned them to Jagan, it sounds as if the Opposition Leader intentionally planned the interview to counter TDP folks and voters who are questioning him back. Surely everyone understands that either Jagan’s answer would prove the questions wrong or invalid. Then, what’s this strategy Prashanth Kishor?
Also if Jagan wants to come up with explosive answers for explosive questions, then he should have done it on the opposition turf. Had he given a similar interview to ABN, it would have marked impact on non-YSRC followers too. With Sakshi being a mouthpiece of YSRC, many viewers are already fans of Jagan and they don’t need any clarity from him. But its people on another side who need it. Seems like Jagan is yet to get his political sketch right!!
