Politicians often file defamation cases on rival media houses when they get opportunity but do not pursue them seriously. But Former Minister Nara Lokesh is proving to be different. He sent a legal notice to Sakshi about a defaming article which says Government has spent 75 Lakhs for his snacks at Vishakapatnam Airport on a visit.
Lokesh mentioned that he is not in Vishakapatnam on the mentioned dates and Sakshi added Protocol expenses to his account and tried to get political gain out of it. Sakshi replied to the legal notice but the answer did not satisfy Lokesh. He has moved to court on this issue.
Lokesh has attended the 12th Additional magistrate court in Vishakapatnam today when the case came to hearing. The former minister is demanding 75 Crore as compensation for intentionally defaming him. It looks like Lokesh has taken the issue seriously.
But then, the case has been filed while in Opposition ignoring Sakshi’s propaganda before 2019 which cost TDP and Lokesh dearly in the election.
