Surya Anniversary Blunder
News cannot be so blatantly distorting. In the days when there is a thin dividing line, often invisible, between editorial and news, distorting can be dangerous. Words may be deceptive but numbers are not. Refer to the table is Surya daily dated 22nd October, 2008 page 1. The table gives the details, caste wise, of tickets given by political parties during assembly elections 2004. The basic fact is that the TDP did not contest all the 294 seats. TDP had alliance with the BJP. Congress too did not contest all the 294 seats. The party had alliance with the Left and TRS. The statistics are misleading and sends incorrect message.
