Irony in Pawan Kalyans party having a proxy channel

Pawan Kalyan's close aide and former IAS officer Thota Chandrasekhar has bought stakes in a news channel named 99TV.  The channel has apparently been known for Leftist leanings.

The news channel is meant to promote the ideology of Jana Sena ahead of the 2019 polls.  Power Star has been at the receiving end of an "unfriendly media" and in an age when every party has its proxy media houses, the actor-turned-politician desiring for a channel is not undue.

Ironically, it needed the money of a businessman (Thota has owned Aditya Group of Industries) to acquire a channel with Communist sympathies.  And this channel will now promote Pawan's socialism!
