Man: Nira I don’t know what’s happening but the reality… anyway, Mukesh just asked me to tell you that… and . hello?. And I think what Mahesh Agarwal who is advocate on record for ADAG. I just saw him on TV and I'm sure Mukesh and Manoj must be seeing the same thing and getting excited and...
NR: I was just speaking to Manoj Modi just now…two minutes back.
Man: I don’t know. Someone just called half a minute ago. Obviously Manoj said something to Mukesh and Mukesh called me. Okay anyway, It is nothing like our stay application was rejected or refused.

NR: How can they lie! Such liars! I will just have a word with all the channels, sir. So don’t worry. I’ll just have a word with all of them.
NR: Yea, government is a respondent and Mahesh …
Man: Yes government is a respondent in our case.
NR: Yea, matter is listed. And all parties including government have been served notice for 20th. And that’s, that’s exactly what we put out to everyone.
