Eenadu is the largest circulated daily newspaper published in Telugu for so many years. Andhrajyothy was the competition for eenadu in nineties. Later udayam tried to race with eenadu. Both were closed down. Later Andhrahyothy has been reopened, but could not match the circulation levels of eenadu. Both are having online editions and epapers. Both sakshi and eenadu are published and having editions in all districts of Andhra Pradesh.
Now sakshi is being published by Jagathi publications promoted by Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy, the son of late Y.S. Rajasekhar Reddy. Both eenadu and sakshi are having tv news channels in Telugu. Both have crossed a daily circulation of more than 10 lakhs copies.
Eenadu was promoted as a newspaper by campaigning against congress. Sakshi was promoted as pro congress till the death of Y.S.R. Now the chairman of sakshi has resigned from congress and is campaigning against congress party and its leaders Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi.
There are allegations against sakshi being promoted by those who funded sakshi by having favoritism with YSR government. Sakshi is published with all pages in color and the price is also Rs.2.5 compared to eenadu priced at Rs.3.00 a day.
