In the wake of the outbreak of Coronavirus pandemic, PM Narendra Modi addressed the nation on Tuesday night and announced 21-day complete lockdown. Beforehand, the PM is learnt to have made phone calls to some news channels' heads across India.
Reportedly, the PM sought the suggestions of media heads on the needful action to be taken after being announced the lockdown.
A Telugu news channel claimed that the PM had rung up the channel's head and sought the advice. And the channel's head advised Modi to make sure the daily comModities are distributed among the people.
However, Sakshi media claimed that it was the only regional channel that was called up by Modi for suggestions apart from TV 9 that was rung up by Modi in the category of national media. Furthermore, Sakshi made it clear that if any channel says that Modi had rung them up, it would be fake.
