Oppn slams T-govt'sreported move to restrict media in Sect - Sakshi Post

The Telangana government's reported move to impose restrictions on access of media into the state Secretariat has evoked a sharp reaction from the Opposition and mediapersons in Hyderabad on Friday.

A group of mediapersons held a protest outside the Chief Minister's Office in the Secretariat against the reported restrictions on entry of mediapersons in different blocks and offices. 

Denouncing the government's reported move, BJP spokesperson Krishna Sagar Rao termed the restrictions on media as 'undemocratic'.
CM KCR's decision to restrain media at Secretariat is undemocratic. If administrative inconvenience is the issue, the government can re-work the permissible number of journalists from each media house.
BJP denounces the decision to restrain media presence at Secretariat, said Rao.

Scribes, currently have unrestricted access to the Secretariat and the government is reportedly contemplating to impose certain restrictions in view of administrative inconvenience and other issues due to the presence of a large number of mediapersons in the Secretariat complex.
