jayatvJaya TV on Monday condemned the resolution passed at the AIADMK office-bearers meeting that decided to fight a legal battle to retrieve the channel and Dr Namadhu MGR newspaper, saying they are “private entities” and they cannot be taken over “by force.”

“The resolution passed by a few people who met under the leadership of Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami decided to take over Jaya TV and Dr Namadhu MGR legally is highly condemnable. They are private entities and nobody can just take over these organisations,” Vivek Jayaraman, CEO of Mavis Satcom Limited that owns the channel and publication, said in a statement.

Vivek, son of Sasikala's sister-in-law Ilavarasi, accused Palaniswami and others of “threatening” the channel and newspaper of a takeover despite knowing well that nothing can be done legally. “This is an open threat to a channel that has earned the goodwill of the people,” Vivek said in the statement.

Alleging that the channel is being blacked out on Arasu Cable TV Corporation, Vivek said the organisation will face all challenges “head on” and will never be scared before the powerful.
