Hyderabad: The popular Telugu daily Namasthe Telangana, which made its entry into the mediascape, questioning the discrimination against Telangana would be remembered as a newspaper that fought and recorded the victory of people in achieving a separate State, said its editor Katta Sekhar Reddy here on Tuesday.
Speaking at a function to mark the sixth anniversary of Namasthe Telangana, Sekhar Reddy pointed out that other newspapers which were prone to downplay the plight of Telangana were forced to write about the regions’ problems after Namasthe Telangana began highlighting them. The newspaper had dispelled the notion that the new Telugu daily would not survive, but it had proved its detractors wrong, he pointed out. “Namasthe Telangana had made a mark during the separate Telangana movement and continues to do so with spirit,” said Reddy.
Vice-president of Telangana Publications, V S Rama Rao said the newspaper has got a solid support of not only readers but also the advertisers. General Manger of Operations of the group, Ch. Srinivas hoped that the newspaper would occupy number one position in the State shortly. Other speakers pointed out the excellent print quality of the newspaper and quality content ensured that the newspaper is preferred by the readers so much so that it had set a record in renewal of subscriptions and also in getting new subscriptions despite it not offering schemes like English newspapers.
