The Indian Newspaper Society has expressed alarm over the threat reportedly issued to the media by Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhara Rao recently.

Rao was reported last week to have threatened to “bury” media groups that insult the people of Telangana.

“The Indian Newspaper Society has noted with alarm the statements about the media reported to have been made by the Telangana Chief Minister, Mr K Chandrasekhara Rao,” the Society said in a statement issued Thursday.

“Any person with a grievance against a publication has legal remedies available for redress. But acts of intimidation and threats of the kind reportedly issued by Mr Rao have no place in a democratic society, especially when they emanate from a person holding a
high position” the statement said.
