The chairman of the discussion said, "I won’t waste time on needless formalities. We are not here to score debating points against each other. We are here to put our heads together and find a solution for countering threats to our national security. You all know what I am referring to. The whole nation was shell-shocked after Richard Gere planted two lethal busses on Shilpa Shetty in broad daylight. So who will open the discussion?"

The Congress leader cleared his throat. "Our party is as concerned about national security as the rest of you. But we advocate a balanced response. The UPA government has still not finalised its policy on creating Special Erogenous Zones (SEZs). Therefore, admittedly Gere’s bid was premature. But was it wrong?" The CPI(M) leader interjected: "The Left Front is awaiting the final draft of your SEZ policy before taking a decision. What we want to know is whether you will allow Foreign Direct Intervention (FDI) in SEZ areas?"
