Responding to personal attack on him and his character, TV journalist and anchor Mahaa Murthy has stated that he has tendered his resignation to the channel as he didn’t want to compromise on his story over Pawan Kalyan’s Janasena. He said he doesn’t want to put his channel and its management, employees in trouble and said he submitted his resignation as he doesn’t want to compromise on the principles. Claiming to be unbiased and not taking sides with any political party, Murthy said it was him who had compromised between Pawan’s critic Kathi Mahesh and Pawan fans back then in his studio. Clarifying that he has nothing personal against Janasena or Pawan Kalyan, Murthy said he is only trying to question the happenings within the party that is inclined towards only one community. Murthy said he has believed in journalism but he said he hasn’t sold it out. Stating that he never took any favours from the government or any political party and said he even rejected the site offered by the government to journos and even the travel passes provided by the government to scribes, Murthy said his integrity can’t be questioned.
