A Janasena Supporter on Twitter posted a small clip of Denduluru TDP MLA, Chintamaneni Prabhakar in which it appeared like he is abusing Dalits. The Clip went viral on social media and Sakshi Media picked it up and aired a story about it in order to pin down the Ruling Party as always.
But a close investigation of the clip revealed that it is doctored to tarnish the image of the TDP MLA. Chintamaneni Prabhakar‘s statements in a Road Show were cut in a way that they give a wrong impression. While the Denduluru MLA is known for numerous controversies, he is clearly not at wrong in this issue.
Even though the truth is revealed, Sakshi refuses to apologize for the mistake and continue you to fan the controversies and poke Dalit Organizations. On the other side, the Janasena Supporter from whose account the video went viral apologized for the mistake and deleted his tweet. But then, the damage has been done already.
This has become a norm in recent times. A story is intentionally planted against the Government in Social Media and it is picked up by the supporters of Janasena, YSR Congress, and BJP. It is then picked up by Sakshi. Since it has appeared in media, many actually believe it to be true. TDP has failed miserably to counter this new kind of Propaganda.
