REPORTERS’ DIARY : Why scribes feel at home with Revanth

Must read

Scribes hopeful of getting house sites are happy these days, thanks to Chief Minister Anumula Revanth Reddy’s resolve to give them their due, which was revealed after his darshan of the deities on Friday at the Sammakka-Sarakka Jatara. The matter would be handled upon the appointment of the Media Committee chairman, he added.
Like at every available opportunity, when newshounds asked him about house sites for scribes, the Chief Minister made it clear: “the Congress government will solve the issue within 100 days”. This implies that the present government, which has completed 75 days, needs only 20 plus days maximum for the issue in question.  Mentioning that the government “belongs to journalists”, the Chief Minister urged scribes to concentrate on writing about the conspiracies of the BRS and the BJP. Drawing a parallel, the Chief Minister recalled that, in the previous BRS government, not only scribes but also (present Panchayatraj Minister) Seethakka was not allowed to enter the new Secretariat after its inauguration. Now, the Chief Minister claimed, scribes are visiting every Minister’s chamber inside the Secretariat freely.
Scribes write about ‘sentimental’ CMs and PMs in a sarcastic manner. But their own fraternal colleagues are not beyond sentiments. One of the scribes commented that the Chief Minister will certainly fulfil the promise relating to house sites for journalists. For, the one with nose for news for newsmen averred: “The Chief Minister made his promise at Medaram during Jatara time”. In contrast, he recalled the CM’s reported comment for effect: “ex-CM K Chandrasekhar Rao paid a heavy price for neglecting the Sammakka-Sarakka Medaram Jatara”.
