TRS leader and Sircilla MLA K Tarakarama Rao has alleged that the �ABN� was a sister organization of the TDP and in fact official organ of the party. Responding to a report that he made money through corruption, KTR said everyone knew to whom Andhra Jyothi MD Radha Krishna was acting as benami.
He said it was the dream of Radha Krishna to see Chandrababu Naidu as chief minister again and towards that end, he was making baseless allegations against others. He said if the ABN Channel and Andhra Jyothy newspaper fail to apologize before Thursday evening, he would file a defamation case. He sarcastically said ABN stood for �Andhra Blackmailing Network�.
He chided Radha Krishna by charging him with resorting to yellow journalism. He asked whether Radha Krishna worked as a journalist ever. He should know the journalistic values, he added. It may be mentioned here that ABN Andhra Jyothy telecast a report alleging that KTR had a role in a property scam worth Rs 100 crores.
