Barkha Dutt: Nirra?
Niira Radia: Hi
Barkha Dutt: Now, their saying, "We’ll take whoever!"
Niira Radia: Whoever matlab? It doesn’t matter Maran or whoever? Baalu or Raja or anything na?
Barkha Dutt: Ha, now their saying that
Niira Radia: But tell me one thing..
Barkha Dutt: I’ve had a long chat and they promised me that Azad will speak to him
Niira Radia: Who? Ghulam?
Barkha Dutt: Ghulam. Yeah.
Niira Radia: You know, the problem is she’s catching a flight at five, haan? Going back. Dayanidhi Maran is attending the swearing in when only Raja has been authorised to attend, so he’s gone and told his leader that Ahmed Patel has called me especially to attend the swearing in.
Barkha Dutt: Ahmed says this is rubbish…
Niira Radia: But I am telling you but this. Karunanidhi’s very confused.
Barkha Dutt: No, but why can’t Kani stay also and attend it?
Niira Radia: She doesn’t want to attend no because her father told her to come back. She has to follow what she’s father says, no?
Barkha Dutt: Let me call Ghulam then. Let me call him.
Niira Radia: Tell him she’s leaving at five. She’s catching a flight at five.
