Why is Pawan Kalyan getting ignored by mainstream media?
In the mainstream media, once a popular hero in Tollywood, Jana Sena Party president Pawan Kalyan has hardly been getting any coverage, despite he has started activating his party in the recent past, after going into silent mode following his party’s miserable show in the Andhra Pradesh assembly elections.
Zero coverage to Pawan Kalyan or his party is being given by the mouthpiece of YSR Congress party, Sakshi. Sakshi channel or even the web edition has completely blacked out the Jana Sena Party and its boss while the daily has not been publishing even a small bit about Pawan either in main pages or in-district supplements.
Even, no place has been found by the letter written by Pawan Kalyan to YSRC president and chief minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy requesting that the government relax norms for the supply of sand to resume construction activities in the state. After the elections, even the pro-Telugu Desam Party media houses like Andhra Jyothy and Eenadu, which used to give considerable coverage to Pawan Kalyan before the elections.
These yellow media are not completely blacking out Pawan, but are giving insignificant coverage in the inside pages, unlike Sakshi. No other media house is giving any coverage to him, while the television channel owned by Jana Sena party leader 99TV has no great viewership. Looks like, to highlight his speeches and party programmes, Pawan has to bring out his own fortnightly magazine.
