Bad Coffee Day

P. Chidambaram found himself in a bit of a soup when he lou­dly complained about the price of coffee (Rs 180 a cup) and tea (Rs 135) at Chennai airport’s Café Coffee Day outlet. Trolls took him to task, saying he sho­uld have walked out of the arri­val lounge and had a cup of filter coffee for Rs 50 at a nea­rby kiosk. Others wondered how a former FM could be unaware of high prices in places where rents are sky high. A few local partymen were perplexed that PC didn’t know about CCD prices even though one of his kin allegedly owned franchises in Malaysia—and how much a local businessman had to pay to become a franchisee.
