Devulapalli Amar, Secretary-General of Indian Journalists Union, said that social organisations, media companies and Telangana Working Journalists along with others, have opposed the ban on ABN and TV9. He said several protest programs have been held requesting the government to lift of ban but to no avail. He expressed his solidarity and support to the protest undertaken by the Telangana Working Journalists Union with a demand to remove the ban on TV9 and ABN channels. He said the media ban is a TRS ploy to counter the channels speaking against TRS leaders. "This kind of incident never took place in India after Independence. Even before Independence, British also never banned any Indian media," he added.
