India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

A10- mem­ber com­mit­tee of min­is­ters that probed Congress’s de­feat in the re­cent by- elec­tions in Andhra Pradesh has made 34 rec­om­men­da­tions to re­vive the rul­ing party. One is to launch a news­pa­per and tele­vi­sion chan­nel to pro­mote the party line. This is tacit ad­mis­sion that Ja­gan Mo­han Reddy’s Sak­shi TV chan­nel and daily con­trib­uted sig­nif­i­cantly to the Congress come­back in 2009. Won­der which rich Congress MP will foot the bill this time, now that Sak­shi has been forced into op­po­si­tion? In­fra­struc­ture ty­coons T. Sub­barami Reddy of Gay­a­tri, L. Ra­jagopal of Lanco and K. S. Rao of Pro­gres­sive Con­struc­tions come read­ily to mind.
