Jagan Mohan Reddy had accommodated all those who helped him come to power in 2019 with one or the other nominated posted. But senior journalist Kommineni Srinivasa Rao is waiting for his turn for a long time.
Nominated posts were created with plum salaries to help many of them.
Kommineni earlier used to be on NTV and was a big voice for YSR Congress in his debates. He has to lose his job as a result and immediately Sakshi employed him. He continued his tirade against Chandrababu Naidu freely from there.
Finally, Jagan decided to make his Press Academy Chairman. The official orders will be out soon.
While the nominated post is very much expected, Giving him Press Academy Chairman is a poor choice. Press Academy Chairman post expects him to be neutral towards all media houses.
But then, for many years, Kommineni is known for spewing hatred on Eenadu, Andhrajyothy, TV5, etc because they do not play trumpets for Jagan Mohan Reddy.
For many years, he does the same in the early morning debates on Sakshi TV.
But then, his attitude is very much in like the tune of YSR Congress. So, Jagan has no problems whatsoever.
