Congress forgets how it conspired against Early Times

Early Times Report

Jammu, May 19: Forgetting that Congress party conspired against Early Times when it was in power and left no stone unturned to silence your newspaper by resorting to all cheap tactics, the Congress activists and leaders are on the Jammu streets these days crying that "democracy has been murdered' in India.
The leaders and activists of Congress party staged a protest in Jammu on Friday against the Karnataka Governor inviting Bharatiya Janata Party to form the government there. Congress activists who took to the streets described it as "murder of democracy."
Irony is that they are same people who "murdered democracy" by intimidating the fourth estate when they were in power and today they are crying foul . Even in the Opposition they have never raised their voice against the discrimination being faced by your newspaper. For them intimidating the media seems to be a "part of the democracy."
Early Times for the past many years has been facing the onslaught of the successive regimes. In fact your newspaper faced the worst discrimination when Congress shared power with National Conference from 2009 to 2014. Despite Congress being in power at that point of time it joined hands with NC to choke Early Times and silence it forever. Someone needs to ask the Congress leaders, who are on the streets today, were not they the party to "murder of democracy" at that point of time.
What Early Times faced during NC-Congress regime is known to all and it's not hidden from anyone. At that point of time Congress leaders acted as mute spectators. From 2009 to 2018 the state run Information department has left no stone unturned to cripple your newspaper by choking the advertisement flow. The erstwhile NC-Congress regime even used state machinery to make Early Times fall in the line and act as the spokesperson of the people in power. All their attempts were foiled as your newspaper despite facing all the odds did not succumb.
The present PDP-BJP regime has followed the footsteps of its predecessor and has been trying its best to make Early Times toe the line of the government but it has not succeeded in its endeavor as ET has carried forward the mission of highlighting the truth and exposing the corrupt people.
The Congress despite being in the opposition at this point of time has never raised the issue of fourth estate being muzzled and Early Times being discriminated by the present regime.
If the Congress leaders are so concerned about democracy being under threat they should come forward and raise their voice against the "dictatorial policy" being followed by the present regime. If they can't do so they should stop throwing "tantrums" and staging dramas. It has been proven beyond the doubt all politicians sail in the same boat and all their slogans and quests end with power. After coming to power they want everyone to salute them and remain at their "beck and call." The people who oppose their wrong policies and point out their follies are made to suffer and face the music.
