"I will listen to both sides... I can draw conclusion only after that," he told reporters in New Delhi.

"I have answered a detailed discussion in parliament...," the minister said. "Therefore, I can comment only after seeing what has actually happened."

Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, according to the media reports, has threatened to bury the media "10 feet under the earth" if they continue to insult the state.

Notably, two channels - ATV9 and ABN Andhra Jyoti - have been banned in the state and journalists from the two channels have been sitting on a protest in front of Raj Bhavan in Hyderabad since Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Congress leader Renuka Chowdhary described the chief minister's reported remark as "highly irresponsible".

"This is a highly irresponsible statement from the chief minister. People who brought him to power will throw him out soon," she said.
