The Supreme Court's order to revive the telecast of blacklisted news channel ABN has come in a time exactly where crucial bypoll for Lok Sabha constituency in Telangana has been announced. Since bypoll for Warangal Lok Sabha is ahead, the revival of services of ABN in Telangana is like a big setback for KCR and his party. It's not something TRS would welcome as it would affect their poll prospects.
Already, there has been anti-incumbency against KCR and his government which would be highlighted by the channel that had been barred for 508 days in the new state.
It may be noted that Supreme earlier ordered Centre and MSOs to immediately render services of the channel and even asked to circulate the order copies to district collectors. So, it's unlikely that KCR could do anything to defer this. On other hand, the wide talk in media and political circles is that ABN Radha Krishna too won't leave easily. So, let's wait and see the big political Tamasha.
