NDTV anchor Sunetra Choudhury has the twitterverse abuzz with her column in the DNA:

I’d been chasing a politician for an interview which he was avoiding. It wasn’t really a big, exclusive interview. He’d spoken to a rival channel and made wild allegations, and my editor wanted me to interview him as well. Dogged as we are, I landed at his place after he’d dodged my calls for 24 hours. I patiently sat with my cameraman while his flak catchers told me how busy “sir” had been all this while. “Sure, I just need five minutes,” I said.

“So, you’ve managed to track me down,” he announced as we entered his study, accompanied by his young, female assistant. “But, sir, isn’t this the first time you named him?” I asked. “Well, you know, if you were to share a bed with me, then at night I’d be grinding my teeth and saying his name as well.”

One has to read the full article in DNA to understand what Sunetra is on about. No point guessing who the "Pervy Politician" is. Half those in power or out are capable of behaving the same way, which makes it difficult to narrow down the field.

 The general opinion, based on the floowing clues:

- Report by Sunetra on 5 july 2011 which mentions a politician http://www.ndtv.com/article/india/new-faces-in-the-cabinet-soon-117005. This politician had been making allegations against Chidu and others regarding CWG scam and had also been interviewd by HT, CNNIBN at the time

- Sunetra's article statess: "..utterings of a foolish old man who was as helpless about it as he was about gas.."

........ is that it is Mani Shankar Aiyer. Of course, it's only speculation.

"They should desist the next time, though, it’s unlikely they’ll only get a giggle."

Well said, Sunetra! Sexual harrassment at work includes gender-based unwelcome conduct of supervisors, co-workers, customers, vendors, or anyone else with whom the victimized employee interacts on the job. The behaviors that have contributed to a hostile environment have included:

unfulfilled threats to impose a sexual quid pro quo.
discussing sexual activities;
telling off-color jokes;
unnecessary touching;
commenting on physical attributes;
displaying sexually suggestive pictures;
using demeaning or inappropriate terms, such as "Babe";
using indecent gestures;
sabotaging the victim’s work;
engaging in hostile physical conduct;
granting job favors to those who participate in consensual sexual activity;
using crude and offensive language

These behaviors can create liability only if they are based on the affected employee's gender. Sunetra would not have been subjected to this treatment if she was a male.
