Only political parties that do not have any democratic values would want to boycott or banish the media.

Former MLA Adusumilli Jayaprakash in a press released said that the TDP and the TRS had threatened to boycott some television channels.

This made it evident that these parties had least regard for democracy, he added. Mr Jayaprakash said that he did not expect TDP chief N. Chandrababu Naidu, , and TRS chief K. Chandrasekhara Rao to make such “irresponsible” statements.
