Vemuri Radhakrishna, the Managing Director of ABN Andhra Jyothi, occupies a unique position among the founders of Telugu electronic and print media houses.
His straightforwardness and lack of fear when addressing people in positions of higher power set him apart from others.
He recently engaged in a ‘Big Debate’ program with KTR, the son of the Chief Minister of Telangana and the rumored future CM of the state if voted back to power.
During the discussion, Radhakrishna openly pointed out various flaws within the high command of the TRS party. In response, KTR patiently and respectfully addressed his stright talk with zero diplomacy.
Interestingly, when Radhakrishna brought up topics regarding the current Telangana CM and his old friend KCR, he used casual language like ‘thikka’ to describe KCR and highlighted personal grudges (Alagadam) he holds against people. Surprisingly, KTR responded with a smile on his face and admitted to Radhakrishna’s observations.
This interview is yet another example of how there is no one else like Radhakrishna in the Telugu mainstream media.
RK is one of a kind in this aspect, as even the topmost media persons tend to surrender when a powerful person sits in the opposite chair and showers them with praises.
