Crime Bureau, Tolivelugu: Tolivelugu has been giving fearless and honest news on the corruption, illegalities, land grabbing, and tyranny happening in Telangana. What is happening in the system is being kept in front of the people. The crime bureau chief of the early dawn has sometimes exposed the most groundbreaking news that no one usually understands with evidence. They went on underestimating the capacity of Tolivelugu, calling it a small-time newspaper and a YouTube channel, but the investigative stories ended up playing the roles of torchbearers for the Central Bureau of Investigation. The main reason is honesty in stories. The government officials did not like to reveal how the lands worth thousands of crores were tied up by obstructing the legal system. Just when the mainstream media thought they had it all figured out for years, Tolivelugu turned out to be a spear in the side. The articles that come in the name of the Crime Bureau have started to become a hurdle for the criminals, and in an effort to avenge the channel Chief Devender, they started filing fake cases against him. It seems that an imprisonment order has been issued to Raghu, a journalist who reads the daily morning news.
The Forgotten Investigative Journalism
Journalists are the people who should take the first step in revealing the faults of the government. But this is not the situation in Telangana anymore. If there are any allegations and charges, the facts and investigation are not being written. When something happens, it becomes news. No one is allowed to know what is happening in the secretariat. The government is giving press notes to the media at 8 o’clock at the night without giving an opportunity to investigate. They are not keeping documents that should be in the public domain. Government orders are not posted on the website. Due to this, many journalists are having a tough time investigating the matter. It has become so difficult that with all the doors closed, the sections of media eventually forgot what investigative journalism means. But, Tolivelugu Crime Bureau is struggling and collecting information at the cost of their lives. Once or twice, the team went to the places where corruption has taken place and telecasted the news. The superiors are not able to digest this as Tolivelugu managed to collect evidence. If their reputation is harmed, they are trying to make arrests by illegally filing criminal cases where defamation cases should be filed.
Minister Srinivas Goud’s murder case
The Telangana government, which has filed illegal cases against the opponents of the attempt to kill a minister, has not been able to solve anything in the end. The authorities have to appear in Nampally court for illegal arrest. If you look at the cases and the sections like the feathers on the chicken’s egg, even if it is a little late, the law will take care of itself. Not only is there a sense of pettiness among the people, but those who are taking a salary from people’s money must be punished once in a while. There is a need to know that there are police officers who are still roaming around the courts in such false cases after retirement.
Pressures on the police for their selfish gains
Officials who embezzled people’s money to corporate companies, leaders who are hurting the middle-class family by setting up land litigation and some others are not accepting the news of Tolivelugu. As the investigation reports are like a peeled banana for the central investigation agencies, they are increasing the pressure on the police officials for damage control. It is reported that the Rachakonda Commissioner is moving his legs. A university chairman and an MLC of three districts who claim to be everything to farmers seem to be ahead. With the addition of Megha’s corruption case and Phoenix’s land case, there are chances of the police succumbing to pressure.
The Power dynamics
KCR always used to say this using some sort of subtle metaphor. It is discussed that the same is happening in the state now. Political leaders are harassing innocent people by filing cases illegally. Third-degree treatment is being given against Dalits in crimes, shackles of Khammam farmers, police anarchy in dry lands, and detention of opposition parties. Journalists are threatened if they ask questions, and cases and arrests are made against people like Teenmar Mallanna. Thus the Telangana government has been arbitrarily dealing with anti-democratic and illegal policies for 8 years. The people and intellectuals of Telangana think that now the central government is like that. Again the sentiment is stirring up among the people who know that your family members will receive notices. They are campaigning as ED Bodi, IT Geeti, and Mukt BJP. What answer will be given to such innocent people for the injustice done to their families? This must be the reason behind the way the central government is the way it is with Telangana Government. It is being openly discussed that they will experience the reward for the atrocities committed by their family in this birth itself. Even Goddess Pochamma will bless anyone who practices ethics and morals and fights for good.
