Restore blocked tv channels

Hyderabad, June 12: Demanding the
immediate restoration of Sakshi and other blacked out channels, YSR Congress
has said that police highhandedness vis-à-vis Mudragada Padmanabham’s fast and
obstructing the people who want to meet him is highly condemnable.

 ‘The MSOs coming under pressure from the
government and police in blocking the channels and the state ministers openly
telling that the channels will not be restored until Mudragada Padmanabham’s
fast is over is highly condemnable,’ party spokesperson Ambati Rambabu told
reporters here on Sunday.

 The MSOs (Master Signal Operators)
cannot yield to political or police pressure and they have to give 21 day
notice to block any channel and the interference of government is highly

 If the channels are not restored
immediately, we will explore legal options, he said.

 Mudragada’s fast and police blocking
leaders meeting him are sending dangerous signals and is reminding of the
Vangaveeti Mohana Ranga’s episode, he said.

 When YSRCP delegation has went to meet
the fasting Kapu leader, they were arrested at Rajahmundry airport and kept in
a police station till evening and did not allow them to meet him.

 When people voluntarily were closing
down shops police used force to refrain them which is not fair in a democratic
set, he said.

 The highhandedness of police is highly
objectionable, he said and demanded that the blocked channels should be
immediately restored and any leader coming to meet Mudragada Padmanabaham
should be allowed to talk to him.
