Hyderabad: Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao reportedly ordered to black out two prominent Telugu TV news channels after allegedly being offended by the `anti-Telangana` contents aired on them, reports said on Monday.

According to reports, few channels like TV9 and ABN Andhrajyothi commented on Telangana leaders when KCR was taking oath as the first Chief Minister of Telangana on June 2.
Reportedly, the channels used some degrading words to describe Telangana leaders who were elected by the people which offended KCR.

Later, realising their mistake, the said TV channels tendered an apology and also stopped airing those programs but Telangana CM gathered all proofs against the channels and fired on them in the Assembly session.
Meanwhile, the journalists and staffers of the news channels organised a protest march here today, demanding CM`s intervention to lift the blackout.

However, the newly formed Telangana government claims that they have not issued any order to black out the channels.
