Revanth following in footsteps of Jagan?

Must read

Even as Telangana Chief Minister A Revanth Reddy is often poked as disciple of N Chandrababu Naidu, on the face of it appears that he seems to be following the footsteps of his Andhra Pradesh Counterpart Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy. When it comes to clearing pending payments including media houses, The Chief Minister wants to review it. In Andhra Pradesh, YS Jagan also held back payments to advertisements given by TDP government after coming to power. While some media houses approached court, it is learnt that the bills have not been fully cleared.
In an interview with The Wire, CM Revanth Reddy said, “We have released money to beneficiaries of Rythu Bandhu. Media houses are not trying to publish this data. Even I am not trying to ask them. They are thinking, if I ask them to publish, they will ask for advertisement.
They will ask us to release payments for the advertisements given by the previous government.
Media has their own agenda and managements belong to BRS party. Why should I ask them to publish? The previous government has given a lot of advertisements with payment pending.
“Media houses are saying release our payments; we will publish your news. I said out of the way, whatever is released, I have to examine. Otherwise why should I continue the crime done by them. They have agenda. They are trying to create perception”. It may be mentioned here that earlier as well Revanth Reddy took similar stand like Jagan when it comes to reviewing Power purchase agreements. YS Jagan Mohan Reddy when he came to power, he wanted probe into the alleged corrupt deals with various companies, including power producers signed by the previous Telugu Desam Party government of N Chandrababu Naidu.
Likewise, Chief Minister Revanth Reddy Chief Minister Anumula Revanth Reddy announced a judicial probe into the ‘misdeeds’ of the previous BRS government in the power sector.
The judicial probe will look into three aspects — a power purchase agreement (PPA) with the Chhattisgarh government and the construction of the Bhadradri and Yadadri power plant. However it didn’t see daylight in Andhra Pradesh
